The police are closing the investigation into the report of an attempted abduction of a child in Trondheim. They have no evidence that the attempt took place.

On Thursday last week, the police were notified that an attempted kidnapping of a child took place at Heimdal in Trondheim. 

After what the police themselves describe as a broad and thorough investigation, the police have chosen to end the investigation, the Trøndelag Police District wrote in a press release.

“We always take cases involving the abduction of children seriously, and this case was a high priority for the police. 

“We have investigated (the case) extensively and worked with several hypotheses,” Marte Myre Linberg, the prosecutor in the case at Trøndelag police district, said.

Detailed investigation

The victim provided the police with an account of events in a facilitated interrogation at the Children’s Home, and based on the person’s explanation, the police have, among other things, conducted a survey in the area where the incident allegedly took place. 

They questioned witnesses, made forensic investigations, and obtained a number of electronic clues.

The police also asked for tips from the public on several occasions.

“The sum of the results from the investigation gives us no evidence that an abduction attempt has taken place. The case is thus closed,” the police concluded in the press release.
