Police are looking for a beggar who accepted a bag of money from a young girl before disappearing without a trace, police in Norway said.

The incident unfolded on Saturday, as the 6-year-old girl and her older sister were walking on the streets of Innlandet.

When they saw the homeless man selling newspapers, the young girl decided to give him some food. The six-year-old girl went to a nearby bakery and bought a loaf of bread.

The girl went back out on the street and handed over the bag that she thought contained the bread.

However, when she got home, the young girl and the sister realized that the homeless man was given a bag full of cash, which they withdrew from a bank minutes before they met the beggar.

The two girls rushed back to the scene, but the homeless man was nowhere to be found. The girls immediately called the police, but so far, the beggar remains at large.

Police said that they are looking for a man around 60 years old.
