TOWSON, Md. (AP) _ It's almost Valentine's Day, and at Towson University in Maryland a mother has been trying so hard to find a date for her son that police are concerned.

The Baltimore Sun reports that a woman in her 50s wearing a multicolored scarf approached students in two campus buildings last week, showing them a picture on her cellphone and asking if they would date her son.

After receiving multiple complaints from the mother's picks, campus police issued an ``incident advisory'' that included a link to pictures of the woman so that she might be identified. Chief Charles Herring said her reported behavior ``may cause concern.''

University officials say the woman isn't being sought for a criminal investigation, but they do want the third-party propositioning to stop.
