    WEST MILFORD-A boy was nearly snatched off the street on Monday as he was walking down Weaver Road. The police are looking for the two men involved. They were reportedly driving a red Ford Bronco. According to police, a 12-year-old boy and two of his friends were walking north in a single file along the shoulder of Weaver Road on Monday afternoon. The victim told police he noticed a car coming from behind that was moving slowly and had the passenger door open. As the vehicle approached the boys, the passenger tried to grab the victim who was walking last. The boy successfully eluded the stranger, however, and the car sped off. The boys continued on their way and it wasn't until they recounted the story to their parents that police were notified. Police conducted a search of the area but did not find any vehicle matching the description. The boys provided a detailed account of the car and its occupants. The passenger was described as a white man in his early 20s who was wearing black sunglasses, a dark baseball cap with a white NY Yankees logo and a dark blue windbreaker. No facial hair. The driver, also a white man in his 20s was wearing dark sunglasses and a tee shirt. The car was a red Ford Bronco, late 80s or early 90s, with dark tinted windows and an uncovered spare tire mounted on the back. The boys also said there was mud or rust above the right rear wheel and a light license plate with dark letters, possibly from New Jersey. A white or silver minivan was reportedly traveling in front of the Bronco at the time. Anyone with any information is asked to call the station at 973-728-2802.
