Tacoma police are investigating an attempted child luring case involving the teenage sister of Teekah Lewis, a toddler who vanished from a bowling alley 13 years ago.

The girls’ mother, Theresa Lewis, reported the incident Monday. It occurred about 4 p.m. Monday inside a store at E. Portland Avenue and E. 35th Street.

A man at the store asked the girl how old she was and she told him she was 14, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

He then made a comment about her being cute and wanting to take her with him, Fulghum said.

The man drove away and reportedly had two children in his backseat.

Detectives are looking into the matter.

Teekah Lewis was 2 1/2 when she disappeared the night of Jan. 23, 1999, from New Frontier Lanes on Center Street. She has not been found.
