When the girl said she was due to meet her mum, the man, who was alone in the car, drove off up Barrow Road, heading away from the town centre.
Police described the suspect as "a mixed-race man, aged 20 to 30, with shortly shaved hair and a clean-shaven face".
Detective Sergeant Ivan Simms said: "It is not clear what the intentions of this man were.
"It is alleged he stopped his car and spoke to the young girl but he did not make any physical attempt to get her into his vehicle.
"I appreciate that due to other reported incidents in the Humberside area and nationally that people are very concerned about apparently suspicious behaviour such as this and I welcome parents giving the children advice about talking to strangers.
"However I would also urge people not to panic and to remember that North Lincolnshire is a very safe place to live."
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, referring to log 637 of October 13.
