'Hop in the car': Child evades stranger-danger, search for suspect continues
HOLLY SPRINGS, Ga. - Police are warning parents and children to be a bit more vigilant after a stranger-danger encounter in Holly Springs.
It happened along New Light Road in the Carson Creek subdivision in Holly Springs around 4:42 p.m. on Monday. The Holly Springs Police Department said a man approached a boy asking for his help to search for a lost kitten.

The child screamed for the man to get away and the man left the neighborhood, police said.
Home surveillance caught the car on camera. Police released two images of it in hopes of finding its driver.
The driver is described as being a white man in his early 40s with short dark hair and a scraggly salt and pepper beard.
