Depuis une semaine, une rumeur agite les réseaux sociaux sur de prétendus enlèvements d’enfants en Maurienne (Savoie). Sur Facebook, des internautes alertent sur la présence d’une voiture BMW à proximité des écoles. Une rumeur infondée selon la gendarmerie.

A black car lurking near schools, kidnapping attempts,… This is what we can read on certain posts published on Facebook and particularly shared in the municipalities of Saint-Rémy-de-Maurienne, La Chambre and Saint-Etienne-de-Cuines, in Maurienne .

"BMW type car, two men on board"

Our colleagues from Dauphiné Libéré cite in particular one of them: "New kidnapping attempt this morning in Sainte-Marie-de-Cuines, BMW type car, two men on board. Let's take care of our children". Information which is cause for concern but which only seems to be a rumor.

"This is just a rumor"

Contacted by our colleagues, the Desprès gendarmerie reassures: "It has reached our ears but it is only a matter of ;rsquo;a rumor. We have had no kidnappings, no attempts and no complaints, not even a hint that could lead us to think that what is circulating on the networks could be real."

If the gendarmerie calls for vigilance on "suspicious vehicles", it refuses to fuel the unfounded rumor.
