FESTUS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Festus police announced Thursday a reported abduction attempt of a female student near Festus High School was a hoax. 

The teenage student told officers she was walking near the intersection of Mid-Meadow Lane and Pryor Drive Wednesday afternoon when a masked attacker allegedly abducted her and pulled into a nearby wooded area. She told officers she was eventually able to escape. 

Parents were later notified of the reported incident by letter and police began an investigation.

After looking into the report and conducting interviews, officers determined the student fabricated the entire event.
