U.T. Tyler Alleged Abduction Victim Filed False Report

U.T. Tyler campus police say a woman who claimed she was kidnapped from campus and sexually assaulted filed a false report.

We first brought you this story earlier this month after an email was sent to students warning them of the alleged abduction.

U.T. Tyler campus police have issued this statement:

"A thorough investigation has been conducted, and evidence exists that the alleged victim's account of being abducted is false."

"There are other factors involved which further tend to discredit the victim's account of the incident. All of these factors, combined with the fact that the victim has not cooperated with recent law enforcement investigative efforts, justifies a change of status in the case to be unfounded."

Campus police said the woman's statements contradicted surveillance video. They also said there was no physical evidence to support the crime.

So far, no charges have been filed.
