CRESCENT SPRINGS, KY (FOX19) -

A follow up investigation into the alleged attempted luring of a child into a vehicle at St. Joseph School in Crescent Springs, Ky., has determined that the reported enticement was a misunderstanding.

On Monday, Principal Cathy Stover sent home a letter informing parents that, “a woman in a tan car, possibly a SUV, tried to lure a kindergarten child into her car. There was also an older boy dressed in a white shirt and dark slacks in the car.  The woman told the student that her mom was going to be late and she was to get into her car.  Thankfully, the child kept on walking down the line because she saw her mother.”

Officials determined a second student (with the same first name as the "victim") was being picked up by a female friend of his mother's.

As the second student approached the friend's vehicle, she called out his name and stated "your mom is running late and asked me to pick you up," said Erlanger Police Lt. Mike Jansing. The victim (who was behind the other student) heard this and thought it was directed at her and reported this to her mother who reported it to the school and police, authorities said.

Stover indicated Monday that officers would be at the school for some time monitoring pickup. She also said there will be changes to the school’s pickup policy.

School officials spoke students about the close call and are asking all parents to do the same, because they say this can happen at any school in any neighborhood.
