Maryland Heights, Mo (KSDK) -- Maryland Heights police said a child enticement story turned out to be a big misunderstanding.

A seven-year-old girl was playing in her driveway in the Brookside neighborhood Thursday night when she thought a man told her to get in the car. She ran inside and told her parents.

Police released a composite sketch of the suspect.

A family saw the sketch on TV and thought it looked like their family member who picked up his son in the same area earlier in the day.

Police said a man saw his son after he got off the bus and told him to get in the vehicle. The girl heard what the man said, but she didn't realize he was talking to his son because her view was obstructed by a truck.

Police interviewed everyone involved and determined that no child was in danger.
