"I can assure Vilnius residents that there was no such incident as a child kidnap," Saulius Gagas, chief of Vilnius County Chief Police Commissariat, told a press conference on Friday night. "Persons who saw the incident might have interpreted it their way."
The police have not received any report of a kidnapped child over the past days, Gagas said.
"Over the past two days, the police have taken a lot of action and analyzed received information and have not found evidence of a crime having been committed at that time and in that place," the Vilnius police chief said.
The police also suggested that prosecutors should drop the ongoing pre-trial investigation into a child kidnap.
"There might have been an incident but we have no evidence it was a child kidnap," Gagas said.
The capital's police received a report at around 7:14 p.m. last Wednesday that a girl aged 11 or 12 years could have been forced into a silver or yellow car with foreign number plates in Sausio 13-osios Street.
Several young boys claimed they saw the incident.
