Pleasants County authorities say an Amber Alert that is supposedly being sent out to people is fake.
The St. Marys Police Department has been getting calls about the alert which is being emailed and text messaged to people.
St. Marys Police Chief Bill Stull says the alert claims that a 7 year-old girl from St. Marys was abducted.
But, Stull says he has confirmed that the Amber Alert is indeed bogus.
He says there is no report of a missing girl or abduction in St. Mary's or Pleasants County.
