Kenova Police believe the second attempted child abduction reported was false.
Police said a 17-year-old girl reported that a man tried to get her into his white sport utility vehicle Thursday afternoon.
A man came forward to police and said he may have been the person involved in the incident. Police said the man was looking for an address and asked the teen for help. When he realized he was a person of interest, he contacted the Kenova Police Department.
Police believe this case was not an attempted abduction. Police are advising anyone asking for directions to approach an adult or police.
The first child abduction reported to Kenova police is still under investigation. Police are looking to identify a white male with a chest-length beard and a barbed wire tattoo around one of his wrists. Police said a suspect in an older gray and black Ford van approached a 10-year old boy on Aug. 19.
