It turns out a reported kidnapping attempt on Thursday at a College Station school was a hoax. College Station police say the Oakwood Intermediate student recanted her story of being kidnapped.
A 13-year-old girl told police she was approached by a man on campus around 11 a.m. and was forced into his car, which was parked in the school's parking lot.
The girl told police she was able to escape near Redmond and Milliff streets, then returned to the school and told officials of the incident.
The case was turned over to the Criminal Investigation Division. During questioning by police, the girl admitted to detectives that she had fabricated the story and she had not been kidnapped.
The investigation continues to determine what charges, if any, will be filed against the teenager.
