Belleville, Ill (KMOX)- A suspect in Tuesday’s reported abduction of a Belleville teen has been released from custody as police search for more evidence.

The Belleville News Democrat reports Swansea police turned the case over to the St. Clair County State’s Attorney, but the office wants some inconsistencies in the investigation cleared up before any charges are filed.

The 17-year-old girl says a suspect pulled a gun on her Tuesday as she was walking home from school. She was able to escape unharmed several hours later.
