PORT CLINTON, Ohio (WTVG) - Port Clinton school's Resource Officer Richard Vance wants parents to be aware of a man communicating with students.

The Port Clinton Police Department wrote this on its Facebook page:

Monday, October 16th, 2017;

I was recently made aware of a situation in which an individual, using the screen name “cry_baby_cryyy”, was communicating through Instagram with multiple young children from the area who attend our school district. Though all the children told me they initially thought this person was another child, he would reveal in conversations that he is an adult male. The conversations that this person had with these children was extremely alarming and this incident will be thoroughly investigated by law enforcement. I also found that some of the parents were not even aware that their child was using Instagram.

Parents and guardians please check your children’s electronic devices and social media accounts!
