NT Staff

MENDOTA — Mendota authorities launched a short-lived search for a white passenger sedan this morning after reports of an attempted abduction near Lincoln School, but the search was called off after the report was deemed unfounded.

Reports broadcast over Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network initially indicated a Mendota schoolgirl was approached by a knife-wielding motorist in a white sedan with tinted windows.

A police call was placed at 7:36 a.m. and set off a search for a suspect vehicle.

However, Mendota police reported shortly after 9 a.m. today the report was deemed unfounded. The search was called off.
