Volga van incident was a false report

According to the Brookings County Sheriff’s Department, the suspicious van and driver reported earlier this week in Volga never happened.

They say, after further investigation, they determined it was a false report.

A 12-year-old boy had reported that a man in an older black van with tinted windows had approached thehim as he was walking to a friend’s house and told the boy that his father had called and asked the man to pick the boy up from school.

The boy gave a detailed description of the supposed van.
