— At least five federal, state and municipal law enforcement agencies responded Tuesday to a reported abduction that turned out to be a hoax.

A Kellyville student told investigators she had seen a man force a teenage girl into a gray pickup and drive away Tuesday morning. The girl later admitted to making up the story, authorities said in a news release.

Several agencies either arrived on the scene or called the Creek County Sheriff’s Department to offer support in the investigation, including the Sapulpa and Kellyville police departments, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshals Service, authorities said.

Sheriff’s department officials said a teenage girl called 911 Tuesday morning, saying someone was following her. Minutes later, someone called 911 from the same cellphone, saying a man had forced a girl into a gray pickup and driven away and had left the girl’s cellphone in the road.

Kellyville schools Superintendent Joe Pierce later said district officials had accounted for every student at the school, including those who were absent Tuesday.
