GOWRIE, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities are investigating two attempted kidnappings reported in the same Iowa county.

Des Moines television station KCCI says the Webster County sheriff's office received two reports on Sunday, one in the town of Gowrie and the other in Dayton.

Sheriff James Stubbs says two girls were targeted in separate instances. One is between the ages of 5 and 6, and the other is between 12 and 13 years old. Stubbs says both children are OK.

Witnesses described a white-colored vehicle in both reported kidnapping attempts. Authorities say they weren't able to give a description of a suspect, but they're conducting interviews and hope to provide more information.
