HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville police say a family called Thursday night to clear up a reported child abduction.

The family said they were "goofing around" and pretended to abduct their child while she was walking on the sidewalk. 

The family stated that they remember seeing a young girl running away, but did not think anything of it until they say the 10 p.m. news. 

They realized that their child and car matched the description of the possible child abduction case. 

Huntsville police say they are proud of the girl who reported what she saw. Police say they teach kids that if they see something, to say something and they were glad the girl was brave enough to come forward.
