PEVELY, Mo. (KSDK) - A report about an attempted abduction in Pevely turned out to be a misunderstanding, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department said.
According to deputies, a boy was riding his bike in a church parking lot along School Road and Cherry Lane Tuesday afternoon when a vehicle pulled up (either an SUV or a truck with a camper on the back). The couple in the vehicle asked the boy to get inside the help them look for some other kids they said damaged their vehicle.
The boy ran home and told his mother, who contacted the sheriff's department.
Authorities made contact with the couple in the vehicle, and confirmed they were searching for some kids who had, in fact, damaged their car while playing football.
