A possible hostage situation in Arrowhead Ranch Estates has turned out to be a false report.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office received a call at about 6:15 p.m. Monday, in which a woman said she and her daughter were being held hostage and abused by two men. Deputies and state troopers were dispatched to the home, while first responders and EMTs were staged nearby.
When law enforcement arrived on the scene, it was determined that the person making the report was not competent and no evidence of abuse was found.
No charges were filed.
