UPDATE: Reported abduction attempt in Laconia proves false
LACONIA - Police say a report from a woman who said someone tried to abduct her on Tuesday night has proved to be untrue.
Police had reported they were looking for a man who tried to grab a 20-year-old woman off her bike near the WOW trail as she was riding near Messer Street around 9 p.m. The department released a description and image of the man based on the victim's account.
Further investigation led police to suspect the story and when the alleged victim was confronted with new evidence, she admitted to making up the story because she was late coming home and was past her curfew, police said.
Police say they are now investigating the incident as a false report and that investigation remains ongoing.
