Authorities in southern New Jersey say their search of an elementary school failed to turn up a bank robber who reportedly tried to enter the building while children were there.

The robber remains at large.

Police locked down and safely evacuated students from the Parkview Elementary School in Westville Tuesday afternoon after the robbery at the nearby Colonial National Bank shortly before 1 p.m.

The robber did not show a weapon and fled on foot.

Police surrounded the school after someone reported a suspicious man near the building.

A room-to-room search failed to turn up the suspect.
