A teenage girl in southern Queensland was chased on foot after she cycled away from two men attempting to abduct her.

The 15-year-old girl was riding her bike on Saturday morning near the Hervey Bay foreshore when the two men tried to coax her into a white van.

When she rode away, they chased her on foot down Bideford Street, in the bayside suburb of Torquay, before returning to their van.
