Police provide update on reported Coventry kidnap

WEST MIDLANDS Police have issued an update on a reported kidnap in Coventry.

Officers issued an appeal on Sunday after receiving a call about a woman who was believed to have been kidnapped at the junction of Quinton Park and Blondvil Street.

Numerous inquiries have now been followed up and police have spoken to the woman involved and found her to be unharmed and safe and well.

It appears what happened wasn’t as it may have looked.

Police have thanked everyone who shared the appeal.

The person who contacted police after being concerned did the right thing in calling and officers said they would always encourage people to do that if they were worried about someone’s welfare.

“We understand how concerning reports like this are, but hope this update offers some reassurance.”
