Meridian Police are looking for a woman who they say approached an eight-year-old boy and tried to get him to her car.

Police say they want to find 42-year-old Krystal Knorpp of Meridian.

According to police, Knorpp approached the boy who was playing on the swings at Ambrose School on N. Locust Grove Road and engaged in conversation when she eventually said that her 8-year-old son needed help with a school project in her car. Police say she told the boy his help would be better then hers and even referenced herself to be a "crazy old mom."

Meridian Police say Knorpp then directed the boy toward the car but the boy hesitated and got scared and stopped short of the parking lot. That's when police say Knorpp got a coloring activity and gave it to the boy.

According to a witness, Knorpp then went back to the swings and began laughing “maniacally.”

Knorpp suffers from mental health issues and is not currently on her medication and has been known to become delusional, police say.

Knorpp is driving a 2005 light green Ford Escape with Idaho license plate 1A308WZ.

Police are asking to contact Meridian Police Department at 208-888-6678 if anyone has any information.
