The incident happened about 10:15 a.m. in the parking lot of Academy at the Lakes on Collier Parkway. Deputies say the girl, a high school junior, was walking toward the school when a man rolled down the window of a Toyota Corolla, waved the girl over and told her, "Come over here, get in the car."

The girl told him, "I have to be somewhere," and walked into the school's front office.

The vehicle left the scene.
