NELSON COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Nelson County Sheriff’s Office says faulty information led to concerns about a possible threat to students at Nelson County High School.

According to a post on the sheriff’s office’s Facebook page, there was a mental health incident involving a student on Nov. 4.

The School Resource Officer at Nelson County High School was alerted about a statement made by a student on social media, and the nature of the post raised concerns for the student’s mental and emotional state.

However, it was determined that statement did not pose a credible threat to the students or staff at the school.

A temporary, modified lockdown was in place on Friday as a precaution in response to this.

Law enforcement and school officials learned the student was not at any school in the county or even in the county at all.

The person was later found outside of Nelson County and they were evaluated for their mental health.

On Monday, law enforcement and school officials learned of social media chatter that raised concerns in the community concerning the incident on Nov. 4.

The sheriff’s office says this information regarding a threat to Nelson County High School was linked to faulty information, based on information obtained during an investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident or future issues of this nature can call the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office at (434) 263-7050.
