    After reviewing additional surveillance footage, police say the alleged abduction that took place in front of a Walmart in Woodbridge, Virginia, appears to be false, police said.

    Officers responded to witnesses reporting they saw two men putting an unknown person into the trunk of a dark-colored sedan in front of the Walmart at 14000 Worth Avenue Saturday.
