Debunking False Child Discovery Claims in Murfreesboro

Murfreesboro Police address and refute false social media claims about a found child.

The Murfreesboro Police Department has issued a statement regarding a social media post that falsely claims a child was found in Murfreesboro. The post in question alleges that a two-year-old boy was discovered in the area and is currently safe at the police station, awaiting identification and family contact. However, the police have confirmed that this story is not true and have been unable to trace the origin of the misleading post.

Authorities have not received any reports matching the description provided in the social media post. The Murfreesboro Police Department encourages anyone with information about the individual who initiated the post to contact them. They have urged the public not to share the post further and to delete it if they have already done so, to prevent the spread of misinformation.

The police department emphasized the importance of public safety and security, stating, “If this were true, the police department would have already notified the public. The safety and security of our residents are always of the utmost importance.” This incident serves as a reminder to verify information before sharing it on social media, especially when it concerns the well-being of individuals or the community.
