A kidnapping report relayed to the Hays Police Department from Salina has been determined to be unfounded, Hays Police Chief Don Scheibler said Tuesday.

The report, relayed to Hays by the Salina Police Department, apparently was the culmination of a disagreement between occupants of a car as they drove from the Salina area toward Hays.

When the car the group was riding in arrived in Hays just before midnight Monday, Hays Police were waiting.

After sorting through the details, it was determined the kidnapping report was unfounded, and the woman who reported the incident left Hays on a bus while the others in the car continued on their travels across the country.

"It's unfounded," Scheibler said.
