'Black Volkswagon Passat' Child Abduction Warning

Outline
Circulating social media message warns users in the Doncaster region of the UK to be on the lookout for a man driving a "black volkswagon (sic) passat" because he is attempting to pick up young girls.



Brief Analysis
The message so far remains unsubstantiated. At the time of writing, there were no news or police reports pertaining to the abduction attempts described in the message. I am currently investigating the claims in the message and will publish more information as soon as possible.
