BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A young girl who told Bellingham Police that a man tried to abduct her on Saturday has recanted her claim.
The 10-year-old girl admitted to a police detective on Tuesday that she made up the entire story.
Lieutenant Rick Sucee says the community no longer has to be concerned about a possible kidnapper in the Columbia Neighborhood.
Police sent out a warning to local media to advise the public of the incident.
Sucee says police will fully investigate every kidnapping report, and it always pays to be vigilant.
