POLICE are questioning whether reports of an attempted child abduction in Murwillumbah are true.
Tweed Byron LAC duty officer Inspector Bobbie Cullen said police were looking to speak with a young boy who may have witnessed the incident at Byangum Rd, Murwillumbah, on Sunday afternoon.
"We are not sure whether it was actually attempted child abduction," she said.
The police investigation follows a Murwillumbah woman posting a Facebook status, about 5.30pm Sunday, regarding her son's experience, which was shared by over 855 people on the social media website.
"My son was nearly abducted 10 mins ago," the woman posted.
"A black motorbike, a man with a black jacket and black helmet and a woman with a black jacket and a red helmet and blond hair, they physically picked him up and carried him to their bike, but at that moment a police car drove past and they let him go and did the bolt.
"If you see anyone like this please call the police. I nearly lost my son. This happened in Byangum Road (Murwillumbah)."
However, another Facebook user posed an interesting question on the Murwillumbah woman's Facebook status.
"This is terrible! I have to wonder how those stupid crims thought they were going to fit your son on their bike when there was already the 2 of them on it, though?" Karen Collins wrote.
"Not sure Karen it could have been any reason but either way it was sinister and doesn't give people the right to do what they did," the Murwillumbah woman replied.
"My son could have been taken or hurt and that's a worry for all parents.
"My son very rarely goes out on the street alone he was walking back from a friends place only 3 blocks away after going to the pool because it was so hot yesterday."
Police have not issued an alert as a result of the occurrence.
Tweed Police urge anyone with information about the incident to contact the station on 07 5536 0999 or CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.
