LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Lafayette police say there is no missing teen girl, and it was all a misunderstanding.

A witness told police that just before 8:00 p.m. they saw a man forcefully put a girl into a car near Melbourne Rd. and Dearborn St.

However, a man and wife came forward today, and said they were the two people involved in the incident.

They said the woman had been experiencing a medical issue and walked away from the Payless on Greenbush. So the man drove to the area to search for his wife.

Once he located her, he put his arm around her to help her get in the car. There was no complaint of domestic abuse or sign of injury on either person interviewed. The couple apologized for the misunderstanding.
