TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- Tippecanoe County Sheriff Bob Goldsmith is advising the community to be on the lookout for a new "challenge" among children.
Goldsmith said the department became aware of a "48-hour Challenge" where children intentionally go missing for two days. A post on the sheriff's office Facebook page said in the challenge, teenagers win points on social media for every mention while they are missing.
The sheriff said there have been no incidents in the county so far. However, Goldsmith said they are trying to simply educate the public before it comes to our area.
The office encourages parents to speak with their children about proper social media use.
