Police are appealing for information after concern about the behaviour of two men driving a silver vehicle in the south of Dundee.
Between 11.30am on Monday March 22 and 4pm on Tuesday March 23, two men were reported to have approached a number of teenage girls at various locations in Dundee, including Glamis Road, Dunholm Road and Craigowan Road.
Police said today that some of the girls were seen in the back of the vehicle.
The pair were in a silver Ford Focus car with the registration prefix LX52.
Different descriptions have been given for the men, however, officers believe the same car and people have approached the girls in at least three incidents which are being treated as linked.
The men are thought to be aged in their late teens to early 20s.
The pair, who did not make physical contact with the girls, engaged them in conversation, and on at least one occasion, two young teenage girls were seen in the back of the car.

Alice Richardson, was one of those who had read the recent appeal for information by Police Scotland.
The 49-year-old who live nearby to Dunholm Road said she was “shocked” by what had happened.
She added: “Things like this are unheard of around here.
“Prior to seeing the police appeal I knew nothing about the incidents which had happened.
“Its no small wonder parents are concerned about these incidents.”
One mother-of-one who did not wish to be named said she was aware of the reports from last month.
She added: “I’ve lived in this area for just under four years and I’m concerned by what has been going on.
“I knew about some the reports prior to the police launching the appeal.
“Some of the teenagers that have been approached were on the receiving end of some derogatory remarks.
“Hearing what has been going on has certainly made me more wary of letting my child out and I know other parents have been feeling the same.”
Constable Adele Mitchell, Lochee Police Station, urged anyone with any information to get in touch.
She said: “Whilst the girls were not physically harmed, they, or their parents, were concerned enough to contact police about the behaviour of these men.
“The girls they spoke to were not known to them, and we’re eager to understand what happened.
“Since these concerns were raised to police we have been carrying out enquiries in the area and are checking available CCTV.
“We know there have been some comments on social media about these incidents but we’re keen that information is shared with us so we can investigate these concerns thoroughly.
“If you have any information that may assist officers with their inquiries, then please contact Police Scotland via 101 quoting reference number 2109 of March 22.”
