The search is on for a man who reportedly has been offering rides to girls walking home from school in the Oakhill area.

Police are asking the public for help in finding the 20-something man.

Three girls reported that a man in a small white compact offered them a ride home, said Escondido police Lt. Bob Benton.

In each case, the man approached the girls just after 3 p.m., he said. One girl was in the 1400 block of Oakhill Street, and another was at Boyle and Rose Street, he said. The other location was unavailable.

When the girls declined a ride, the man drove off, Benton said.

The may be a Honda or Toyota, he said. The partial license plate is "5W00" or "5WWM," Benton said.
