Police investigators in Albany are asking for the public’s help in finding a driver suspected of attempting to lure a teenage boy into a van Wednesday.

Officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the late evening hours when the boy said the driver came up to him while he was walking home in South Albany.

Officers did not provide a description of the driver.
