The Chilliwack RCMP is investigating an odd incident that happened Saturday during the CheerFest cheerleading competition at Heritage Park.

One of the young participants was approached by an adult woman who asked the youth if she knew where her mother was. The participant said no. The woman then asked if the participant would like to come with her in her car to drive around and find her mother. The participant said no again, and the woman left.

No harm came to anyone in this incident,” said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen “We would like to clarify this person's intentions.”

A composite sketch has been completed.

Anyone who can identify the woman or provide more info is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
