Child abduction report called false
NORTH GREENBUSH — North Greenbush police say an attempted child abduction that was reported to police Wednesday never occurred.
The 12-year-old girl who made the report has since recanted her story, police said.
She had initially told police that she was walking in the Lake Meadows neighborhood of the Snyder’s Lake area of town around 8:45 p.m. when a gray vehicle, possibly a Honda, pulled up. The girl told police a man tried to lure her away, but she ran off.
The child was unable to give a further description of the man or the vehicle, though police said witnesses described it as “having a ‘bad’ paint job.”
