The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office is now reporting that the two girls who told a story about an attempted kidnapping made everything up. On Monday, the girls told the Sheriff’s Office that a black van pulled up beside them in the 1600 block of North 2nd; the door opened and the man inside ordered them into the van, or he would kill them. They also said he had a gun on his hip. On Tuesday, the mother of one of the girls called the Sheriff’s Office to report that the story was not true. One of the girls says that the other girl had concocted the story, and then got her to go along. She says that the girl who made up the story got the idea after a blue van had driven by them; that van didn’t stop, and no one talked to them. The girl who made the story up is reportedly sticking to her claim, but the Sheriff’s Office says that they do not believe that the story is credible.
