DANVILLE, Va. - UPDATE

Danville police have determined that a reported robbery and abduction never actually happened. 

Police were looking for two people in their early teens, based on information the officers had received. 

Now, though, police say that information was not accurate. 

Charges for filing a false police report have not been announced. Investigators, at this point, believe that the woman who reported it legitimately thought that there was a robbery and abduction. 

A police spokesperson did not know why the woman may have thought that. 

 

 

ORIGINAL STORY
