Police are searching for a man accused of trying to lure a young girl into his car in Queens, and they are hoping that a sketch will lead to an arrest.

Investigators say the suspect drove up alongside a 12-year-old girl Wednesday afternoon and tried to get her into his light-colored SUV.

The incident happened just after 4 p.m. on 49th Street and Ditmars Boulevard, not far from LaGuardia Airport.

The girl refused, and the man took off when the girl's babysitter approached.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
