Men come forward in abduction case

TWO men have come forward and spoken to police after two teenage girls were allegedly approached at Banora Point, on the far north coast of New South Wales over the weekend.
 
Two 13-year-old girls were walking home from Banora Point Shopping Village at about 5.30pm on Saturday when they were allegedly followed by a van in Eucalyptus Drive.
 
It is alleged that the male driver attempted to entice the girls into the van, but drove away after an elderly couple who were walking nearby intervened.
 
A 22-year-old Pottsville man and a 20-year-old Kingscliff man presented themselves to Tweed Heads Police Station at about 8am today.
 
Both men were interviewed by police in relation to the incident and released.
 
Police are no longer looking for the van and would like to thank the community for their assistance.
 
Police inquiries into the incident continue.
