Police have still not been able to find the man who tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl in Stoneleigh more than two weeks ago.

They have continued mounting high visibility patrols in the area since the attempted abduction on October 20.

A Surrey Police spokesman yesterday confirmed there have been no further abduction attempts in the area and said officers are reviewing CCTV footage, speaking with residents and the victim and running checks to trace the vehicle.

He said: "Everything possible is being done to bring the man responsible to justice."

The incident, which shocked the community, took place at 11.45am on Friday, October 20, a driver approached the girl and tried to pull her into a vehicle described as a silver saloon with tinted windows at the junction of Clandon Close and Briarwood Road.

Police thoroughly searched the surrounding area and carried out house to house enquiries.

Detectives are continuing to carry out an extensive investigation.

Brian Radford, from B Radford and Son butchers in Stoneleigh Broadway, said police had been in the shop and patrolling up and down.

Mr Radford said: "People are still wary but you have to be these days.

"There was always a police presence up here but now you know this sort of thing happens you feel more confident having police in the area."

The man police are hunting is white, in his late 20s or early 30s, around 5ft 11in, with curly brown hair with specks of grey.

He has an athletic build, and his top row of teeth were damaged and several were missing.

Anyone with information should call Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference EP/12/4133, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
