Police Say Abduction Story a Hoax


Tallahassee police say the attempted abduction that resulted in a lockdown for two local schools was all a hoax.

Officers say the little girl was lying when she claimed she was approached by a man in back of the Raa Middle School gym Thursday morning.

She initially told authorities the man grabbed her, but she managed to break free. Both Raa and nearby Reudiger Elementary were locked down as officers searched the neighborhood.

There's no word on why the girl made up the story.
