CADIZ POLICE DEPT 300CADIZ, Ky. (6/18/14) — The Cadiz Police Department investigated a report of an attempted child abduction June 17 at 2:20 p.m. on West End Street.

Major Duncan Wiggins spoke to an 8-year-old female, who told him a woman got out of a blue truck and began taking pictures of the house and attempted to abduct her. The girl reported this to her grandparents who then called police. The girl described the truck and the woman to Major Wiggins, who also spoke to an eyewitness that gave more details of the truck and a direction of travel.

With this information and through his investigation, Major Wiggins was able to locate the driver of the truck and the female passenger. They were in the area on official business and doing home inspection work, which requires photographing the outside of homes. When Major Wiggins questioned the girl a second time, she confessed to making up the story about the woman approaching her and attempting to abduct her.

"We are glad the attempted abduction turned out to be false," said Sgt. Scott Brown. "We are also appreciative of the witness who was paying attention to what was going on in his neighborhood and reported those details to the police. Neighborhood vigilance is a big key in helping police solve crimes."

There will be no criminal charges filed, and the Cadiz Police Department has closed our investigation.
