A 13-year-old girl has lied to police about being abducted and undressed by two men on the NSW north coast.
Police appealed for calm in the Coffs Harbour area after it emerged the girl gave false information to police about the incident, which she said happened at 8.00am on Friday.
The teenager told police she was walking along a bush track when two men grabbed her and started to undress her.
She said an unknown man had intervened, allowing her to run away.
Police on Monday said a major investigation had been launched after the report, but it emerged the girl had not been telling the truth — via redwolf.newsvine.com
