DENVER — An Amber Alert was issued Friday night for a possible abduction of a girl in her early teens.

Hours later, the Amber Alert was canceled after police said no abduction took place.

The bizarre incident happened in the vicinity of the Sam’s Club parking lot at East 36th Avenue and Quebec Street in Denver around 10:40 a.m. Friday.

Police were looking for a white man in his late 40s. The victim was described as a white female with blonde hair.

When the incident first happened, police described the case as a possible sexual assault before calling it a possible abduction.

Authorities then issued the Amber Alert around 6 p.m. before canceling it just after midnight.
