Would Be Vista Woods Abductor Tale a Hoax

NORTH STAFFORD, Va. — The report of a strange man who police said pulled up to a young boy and told him to get into his pick up: Stafford authorities tell us the report was made up.

Here’s more in a statement issued by the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office:

The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that the suspicious person and suspicious activity incident reported in the Vista Woods subdivision in Stafford County on Wednesday, July 8, 2014 is a fabrication.

Stafford Detectives interviewed the 9 year old boy, who reported the incident, and determined that the youth made up the story of the male subject approaching him and telling him to get into his truck. Indications are that the young boy made up the story so that he would not get in trouble for an unrelated incident.

No charges have been filed in this case.
