Oswego Police determined a report of an attempted abduction in the Village was unfounded. On
Thursday, August 2, 2018, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Oswego Police received a call from a father
who had returned home and reported that his 10 year old daughter was not at home and missing.
During the call the father located the girl, who reported she was abducted from their home. It was later
established that the girl had fabricated the abduction story. Several police units and canines were in
the Blackberry Knolls subdivision Thursday morning for the investigation until approximately 9 a.m.
Oswego Police greatly appreciate the assistance that was provided during the investigation by the
Kendall County Sheriff’s Office and the several responding canine units that were in the area for a
police canine training class: Aurora Police Department, Kendall County Sheriff’s Office, Kane County
Sheriff’s Office, Illinois State Police – Chicago, Lombard Police Department, Morris Police Department,
Oak Brook Police Department and South Elgin Police Department.
