There are reports that a pair of child predators are looking for victims in our area, but what can you do to keep them from getting their hands on your child. Police across the region are on high alert. They’re keeping a lookout for a pair of men who reportedly tried to abduct children in two separate incidents in Fayette County. Experts say it’s possible to give your child the tools they need to help them stay safe without scaring them half-to-death. Sergeant Melissa Clemons is a member of the West Virginia State Police Crimes Against Children Unit. Clemons is partially based out of Princeton. She says kids need to be prepared in case they encounter the reported predators. “The people that are doing this obviously know what interests children and how to attract children, I guess, I hear that it was either ice cream or candy or the puppy,” said Clemons.
