NEWPORT, Mich. - Authorities are looking for a man who attempted to abduct an 8-year-old girl from a Frenchtown Township mobile home park near Telegraph Road and I-275.

The man approached the girl about 8:15 p.m. Thursday in the Frenchtown Villa Mobile Home Park, enticed her with candy, and grabbed her shirt, Monroe County sheriff's detectives said.
