Police have released an Efit of a man reported to have asked a 12-year-old girl get into a silver Skoda.
The girl said that the car stopped in Ashacre Lane, Salvington near Worthing on June 20 and passenger got out of the back seat and asked her to get in.
The girl ran away and reported the incident to police.
Detective Constable Mandy Dunk said: "The girl was shaken but otherwise unharmed.
“She describes the man, who was with two other men in the car, as white, skinny and scruffy, and with dark short hair and stubble.
“We now believe him to be in his late twenties, and not about 20 as previously described.
"This is a very busy road especially at 5pm when she said this happened.
“We are looking into the circumstances and at this time are keen to find anyone who witnessed the incident.
"If anyone saw a silver car she describes as a Skoda, stop and someone talk to young girl before rejoining the traffic we would like them to contact police by calling 101 and quoting serial 1183 of 20/6."
This incident is being treated as an isolated incident.
There have been no similar incidents in the area and it is not being linked with any other similar incidents elsewhere.
