Child ab­duc­tion re­port called false

Albany Times Union - - AROUND THE REGION -

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.”
