Given a lack of evidence that a child was actually abducted, police were scaling back the search.

According to police, a 12-year-old girl told officers that she saw a young girl being forced into the trunk of a black car on Shaar Haariyot Street in Holon, before the car then tore off from the scene.

Police arrived on the scene and began canvassing the area in an attempt to locate the girl.

Police contacted local schools to see if there were children who had not reported to class, but as of Sunday afternoon had not been able to confirm the 12-year-old's report.
