The alleged abduction that prompted an AMBER Alert Monday was fabricated, according to Calaveras County Sheriff’s investigators.
One juvenile was taken into custody, the Sheriff’s Department said. Investigators did not say if that juvenile is Sergio Vazquez, the 14-year-old boy at the center of the story.
Vazquez was found in Stockton a few hours after the AMBER Alert was issued.
Investigators did not release any more information.
