MCGREGOR (September 30, 2013)--McGregor police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction of a child from a local park, but say they’ve found no evidence of such an attempt.
The incident reported Sunday in Amsler Park in McGregor was supposed to have involved a tan van, but police say they have found neither the van nor independent witnesses.
“There were officers in the area within minutes of the alleged incident,” McGregor police Chief Steve Foster said in a press release Monday afternoon.
“There was no van located nor were there any persons in the park that saw the van,” he said.
The department is checking with other agencies to see if any similar incidents have been reported involving a van of the same description, he said.
