CORPUS CHRISTI - Police say what initially sounded like a terrifying afternoon for two young girls Thursday afternoon never actually happened.
The girls contacted police just after 3:00pm, saying they were taken by three men in a van around 11:30am, before escaping in the North Beach area and calling for help.
They were immediately taken to the Children's Advocacy Center to talk to experts about the incident.
But hours later, CCPD released a statement saying the abduction story was a "false complaint".
However, it's still unclear whether the girl made up the whole thing, or whether they voluntarily got into a van with several men and then had second thoughts.
The statement from police did not indicate whether the girls will face any charges for filing a false police report.
