Damn kids and there parents. I worry about this kind of stuff every day and when it get close to home u don't even want your kids playing in the front yard. And then you have got kids that make up an attempted a kidnapping. And they are old enough to know better.

What on EARTH would a person gain from fabricating this story??

Yeah, let's cry wolf so that the cops go after fake bad guys and the real bad guys just get away.

Ugh what is wrong with people?!? It's bad enough there is a creeper lurking, now we have liars trying to get in on the action.

The Republic Times and the News-Democrat have both posted stories saying that the Columbia incident was also a hoax. While I'm sorry that the kids/adults felt the need to lie about something like this, I'm very glad there isn't someone else running around trying to kidnap children. One creeper is one too many, and the white pickup guy needs to be caught.

Both kids and their parents need to be punished for making up something that serious. What did they hope to gain?

Parent should be charged. If you knew who the parent was and what role they play in the community, you would really be shocked at why the child was unattended that night anyway. Ridiculous!!

I can not believe you are happy that your child made a false report about something so serious. You should be ashamed of yourself and embarrass for you daughter and family. She and you should be punished to the fullest extent of the law for wasted time of all officers involved. Shame in all of you involved in this

I do know these people and honestly would have never have expected this out of child. However, when the child talked with my child the other day, I overheard them talking and nothing he said matched what the news.reports said. When we questioned him about how a single driver could have been in a driver seat and tried to pull an 11 year old kid thru a window, he quickly kept trying to modify his story with sillier and sillier details that made no sense. The bottom line is, an 11 year old should not be alone wondering that late in the eve and I personally would never leave a 15 year old to supervise an 11 year old for extended periods of time. No way I would leave them alone if i was out of town.
