CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Police said three teens involved in what appeared to be an abduction at Chesterfield Towne Center Saturday evening are safe.

Chesterfield Police said in an email late Saturday that officers were called to the mall in the 11500 Midlothian Turnpike at 7:30 p.m. for a suspicious incident that "appears to be an abduction."

Officers said that the three teens are back home with their families.

Police said the case remains under investigation and that more information will be released Monday.
