Santa Barbara County Sheriff Deputies are searching for a man they say exposed himself to a teenage girl in Goleta.

The report came in at around 4:08 p.m. near the 6800 block of Cathedral Oaks Road.

Deputies say the report described a suspect exposing his genitals to a young girl who was walking in the area and continued to touch himself in front of her.

The 17 year old girl says the man was driving a white van, looked to be in his 30's to 50's, with subtle facial hair.

The young girl ran from the area and the man had left the area before deputies arrived.

Deputies say they searched the area and were unable to locate the man or the vehicle, which is described as an old model white Ford van.

According to a press release, another witness reported seeing the van near La Patera Lane at Cathedral Oaks Road just prior to the incident.

Anyone who may have further information on the incident is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (805) 681-4100.
