ONLY ON CVP: Authorities tonight found an Emerson man in Ridgewood whose family feared he’d been kidnapped following a phone scam.

The 28-year-old man apparently had gone out to secure money following the call, a law enforcement source told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Family members became worried, however, and called police.

An alert was issued and police pulled over his red Fort Econoline van soon after near the Rite Aid on East Ridgewood Avenue.

Emerson officers then escorted him back to town.

“We’re trying to get to the bottom of what happened,” an Emerson sergeant told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight. “It seems to be a misunderstanding. We’re still investigating.”
