The Brownsville police department in Texas has launched an investigation following Tisha Campbell’s attempted kidnapping story she told via social media.

We previously reported that while waiting for a car service, the actress details the encounter where she was almost abducted by human traffickers. She explains rear  she is currently filming a project in a town that doesn’t have Uber. She was given a phone number to a taxi service and a “sketchy” van arrived.

“The van that pulls up is real sketchy looking but there’s a guy in the back seat. So when he jumps out, he’s just standing there. I thought he was getting dropped off, but he’s just standing there. He goes, ‘Get in’, and I go ‘What?’. He goes, ‘Get in” and I go “No!”, Campbell said.

After a police investigation, the PD says they’re unable to “validate” Ms Campbell’s story. In a statement released on the PD’s Facebook account, they explained, “upon reviewing facts presented by Ms. Campbell in her video, BPD Investigators quickly launched an investigation as such cases are not the norm in our city. Through numerous interviews and reviews of security camera footage, we could not validate Ms. Campbell’s stay in Brownsville hotels nor any other claims made in the video.”
