School officials in Ohio are on alert following reports of a drone being used to try and lure children off school grounds.

Children and adults reported seeing the drone at Windemere Community Learning Center in Akron over the weekend.

The principal said several witnesses even heard a voice coming from the drone, attempting to coax the children off the playground.

The district sent a letter warning parents to have an adult accompany children to the playground.
