EDISON - Parents across northern New Jersey are on alert as reports of child luring attempts continue to pour into police.

The latest incident was reported earlier today in Morristown.

Police are circulating three sketches of men suspected of trying to lure kids into their cars.

Police and schools are stepping up their efforts by alerting parents to the incidents and urging them to talk to their children.

Experts recommend making sure children know their address and phone number in case of an emergency. They also say parents should teach kids to always walk with a friend, walk away from the curb, and to yell "no" and run in the opposite direction if approached by a stranger.
