JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is no longer investigating reports of a possible child abduction after the child admitted to fabricating the story.

Tuesday morning at about 8:00 a.m., JSO responded to a bus stop at Merrill and Hartsfield Road.

According to a JSO Facebook post, the victim's mother said her child was approached by a man in a red pickup truck. The child described the man wearing a blue tee-shirt, white pants, and with a gray mustache.

Detectives learned that the suspect and vehicle description were completely made-up by the child.

JSO conducted a search of the area immediately by using their Air Unit, but did not find the vehicle or person matching the description.
