MERRIAM, KS (KCTV) -

Merriam police were on the lookout for a man who allegedly tried to lure a 12-year-old girl into his car, but after talking to the man it was discovered it was all a misunderstanding.

At about 7:13 p.m., the girl was coming out of Walgreens at 8701 Johnson Drive when a white man between the ages of 50 and 60 pulled his white four-door vehicle up to the exit doors and asked if the girl wanted to get in so he could give her a ride home.

The girl went back inside the store and called her mother. Her mother then called Merriam police. 

A description of the man, as well as surveillance pictures of him and his car, were shared with the public by authorities. 

The man contacted police and the girl's mother and explained the situation to both parties. He said the 12-year-old's older sisters are friends with his own daughters, and that the girl's family lives right behind him. He says he told the girl who he was when he talked to her at the store and offered her a ride home. 

The investigation has now been concluded.
