A warning issued by the Greenville Independent School District about a suspicious person who approached a child was a case of mistaken identity.
The district said a man approached a Greenville Middle School girl on campus at about 11 a.m. on Wednesday and offered her a ride home. The girl refused and the man drove away.
However, the district said it was later deemed to be a harmless case of mistaken identity.
"The suspect was a parent who mistook the identity of the student for that of a friend's grandchild. Being that it was an early release day, he was concerned that the student had not yet been picked up and was offering her a ride." Greenville ISD said in a statement.
School officials are still urging parents and students to remain watchful and vigilant in the wake of the murder of a 16-year-old Greenville girl.
Police are still searching for her killer.
