Fresno County Sher­iff’s de­tec­tives said Satur­day that they have canceled their search of a sus­pect in the at­tempted kid­nap­ping of an 8-year-old-boy re­ported ear­lier this week.

De­tec­tives had searched for a per­son who tried to abduct a boy who was play­ing out­side his home near Selma.

Af­ter con­duct­ing var­i­ous in­ter­views and fol­lowups, how­ever, de­tec­tives dis­cov­ered in­con­sis­ten­cies in the child’s story of the kid­nap­ping at­tempt and are no longer in search, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

“Our con­clu­sion is that it did not hap­pen,” Fresno County Sher­iff Pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer Tony Botti said in an email mes­sage.
