A report that a possible child abductor made a failed attempt to kidnap a student Walking towards lakeside high school this week turned out to be unfounded, authorities said Wednesday.

Three students told administrators at the Woodside Avenue campus that they were on their way to school shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday when a black SUV pulled up next to them and someone inside opened a back door and tried to grab one of them, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

“After further investigation, detectives with the Lakeside Sheriff’s Substation determined that the (report) was unsubstantiated,” Lt. Shawn Wray said Wednesday.

Officials did not provide further information.
