An alleged attempted kidnapping involving a teenager in the Algarve city of Silves caused widespread alarm after a warning went viral on social media. However, police investigating the supposed incident found it was fake news.


No kidnapping in Silves

A warning doing the rounds on social media sites, reading: “WARNING!!! A SILVES teenager was abducted with chloroform today, another boy reported being followed. Stay in groups!”, caused alarm among the webpage's users.

 

Police did investigate the incident, but found it to have been bogus.
