Authorities pursue possible kidnapping hoax

March 12, 2010

Indiana State Police are among authorities from several jurisdictions investigating the possible abduction of two children in Indianapolis, after a note describing the crime was found taped to a rest-stop bathroom on Wednesday in Bullitt County, Ky. According to the note, a brother and sister named Josh and Laura McKae were forced into a truck by a man at an Indianapolis gas station. The truck then proceeded south on I-65. Noting some red flags, officials aren’t sure if the note is legitimate and are searching for more details.
