There was no evidence a man attempted to abduct an 11-year-old boy at Blaxland on Tuesday, investigations have revealed.
The boy told police a man attempted to drag him into a dark-coloured sedan as he waited for his father on the corner of Kidman Street and the Great Western Highway about 5pm Tuesday, May 29.
However, police have released a statement saying extensive investigations in the area had lead officers to believe the incident did not happen as reported.
"As a result of the report, police from Blue Mountains Local Area Command . . . conducted an extensive canvass of the area, examined CCTV, and spoke with locals and the child," the statement said.
"Police believe while a man may have spoken to the child, there was no attempted abduction as described.
"Police still encourage parents to speak with their children about safe people and safe places and to call Triple Zero (000) if they are concerned."
