After further investigation by law enforcement, it has been determined that there was no attempted kidnapping.

The student confessed to law enforcement that the incident did not occur. She is being charged by the Columbia Police Department with Filing a False Police Report and False Swearing. We appreciate the Columbia Police Department's diligence and professional response resulting in a quick resolution.

Students, faculty and staff are always encouraged to report unlawful or suspicious activity immediately to law enforcement by dialing 777-4215 or 911.
