(KTVI) -Scott Air Force Base is on heightened alert after reports of a suspicious man approaching two kids.

It happened Wednesday evening in the housing area of the base.  Reports say the man was driving a black van with a dog and approached two girls separately and asked if they wanted to see a box full of money.

Both said no and ran.  Security crews swept the area looking for him, but came up empty.  Officials say they’ll continue to investigate.
