    Police at the Jersey Shore are looking for a man who they say tried to lure a girl into his car.

    The 14-year-old girl was walking to a friend's house on Huron Avenue in Absecon, N.J. around 10 p.m. on Monday when a man drove up next to her along adjacent Pitney Road, police said.

    The man, who was driving a mid-size blue four-door sedan, told the girl to get into his car twice, police said. After refusing, she ran to her friend's house, which is located nearby. They then called police.

    The luring suspect is believed to be in his 30s with dark hair and a large nose. The blue sedan may have had NJ license plates, police said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Absecon Police at 609.641.0667.
