UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 6, 2011:
This is a follow-up to the GavALERT that was sent out last week, reporting a possible abduction on campus. At this time the Sheriff's Department continues to classify the report as a "suspicious circumstance" but has not been able to confirm that anyone was abducted. No one has been reported missing, and no further witnesses have been able to fully corroborate the initial report.
The witness who made the report saw a van pull over in parking lot F, a person grab someone and put her in the van, and then the van drive away quickly. Another witness felt it may have been an incident of horseplay. The case is still open. If you have any information about this event, please call the Santa Clara County Sheriff at (408) 808-4900.
