The Burleson Police Department says the investigation into reports of an unknown man approaching a third-grader is closed.
The city said in an email to the media Friday that a man came forward and told police he saw signs up in the neighborhood about a lost dog and when he saw the child, followed by her mother, he stopped to ask if she had lost a dog.
The mother of a student from Bansom Elementary reported to police that the man asked the girl initially if she had lost a puppy. The child said no, the mother says the man drove off as she walked up to his car.
Burleson now says the case is closed and police say it was just a misunderstanding.
