West Tisbury Police have received reports of a suspicious motorist attempting to pick up minor female pedestrians. The first report indicates that on Jan. 24 in the vicinity of Island Farms Road and Oak Knoll Road, at about 3 pm, a woman drove up to two juveniles and asked if they wanted a ride.

“The woman is described as follows: a middle-aged white female (late 20s to late 30s) with dark curly hair, operating a white, boxy style SUV, possibly a Jeep,” a release states.
