PALM BAY, Fla. - A Palm Bay mother called 911 after a man tried to lure her children into the woods.

It happened in the family's backyard on Carpenter Avenue.

"My daughters were just outside playing and I was standing in the kitchen and there was a guy that came out in the yard and was talking to my daughter trying to get her to come with him. When I went outside he ran off in the woods," the 911 caller said.

Deputies searched by air and with K-9 units around the home on Sunday, but did not locate the man.

The mother said the man was dressed in camouflage and told her daughters that his dog was sick and needed help.
