A young boy told his parents that a woman came up to him in the park and invited him to her house, which she claimed was nearby.

When one of the child's parents approached the scene, the woman quickly walked away. His parents attempted to locate the woman in the neighbourhood, but were unsuccessful.

The woman is described as caucasian in her late 30s to early 40s, approximately 5'5" with shoulder-length brown hair wearing black leggings and a shiny blue tank top.

Police are asking anyone with further information about this incident to contact the RCMP at 604.485.6255.


Fire ban in effect

BC Wildfire Service has implemented a ban on all campfires and open fires throughout BC's west coast, including Powell River region, as of 12 pm on Thursday, July 6.

The service announced the ban due to rising temperatures and upcoming long bouts of dryness in the province.

The ban includes campfires, open fires, fires burning wood in outdoor stoves and the use of torches, fireworks, sky lanterns and all burning barrels or burning cages.

The ban does not include properly rated cooking stoves using propane, gas or briquettes.
