Halifax District RCMP have identified a man and a girl who visited a horse stable on Conrad Rd. in Lawrencetown on September 20.

On September 25, Halifax District RCMP issued a news release asking for help to identify the man and the girl so that police could check on her well-being. The girl's well-being has been checked on and she is fine.

The investigation has been concluded and the RCMP would like to thank the public for their assistance and retweets on social media.


Halifax District RCMP want to speak with a man and check on a girl’s well-being after the pair visited a Lawrencetown horse stable late last week.

At around 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, the older white man and girl arrived at the Conrad Rd. stable in a van.

The man stayed in the van, while the girl -- thought to be between 7 and 10 years old -- walked around the stables and talked to staff.

Police say the girl returned to the van and staff asked the man to leave.

The man is thin with long grey hair. He was wearing thick rimmed glasses and a black ball cap.

The girl had red hair, freckles, was wearing a purple velvet riding helmet and was carrying a small riding crop.

The black van is described as a full-sized older model, possibly from 1992. It was rusty and its paint was peeling off.

Mounties say it's thought the man and girl visited the same stable 6 months to a year ago. They add the pair may also frequent other horse stables.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020 or submit an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.
