NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - North Las Vegas police says parents need not worry as an elementary school student’s claim of an abduction attempt was unfounded.

Administrators at Jesse D. Scott Elementary School sent parents a letter on Tuesday describing a report of a man encountering a fifth-grade student in a park after classes let out. According to the letter, the boy was pulled into a vehicle during the encounter.

On Wednesday, police confirmed the department’s investigation is closed and that the claims were unsubstantiated.

School officials say parents should still encourage their children to walk in groups to and from school and to always decline rides from strangers.
