Essex County OPP now say an attempted abduction, reported to police by a girl last Thursday, didn't happen.
Police had asked for the public's help after a girl told them she was approached by a van in Leamington while walking last Thursday.
Just after midnight Saturday, OPP sent out a news release saying the report of an abduction attempt was false.
