The Antigo Police Department has cleared the creators of a viral YouTube video of any connection to the disappearance of Kayla Berg in 2009.
On their Facebook page, the department pointed out the video titled “Hi Walter! I got a new gf!” could be connected to Berg, who disappeared in August of 2009. The video was posted on October 11, 2009, two months to the day after Berg was last seen, and it depicted a young woman restrained and calling for help that matched the last known description of Berg.
Now, the department says it has contacted the producer, actor, and actress in the video and has concluded it was 100% scripted. The names of those involved were not given in the Facebook post.
The original video on YouTube was taken down by the site on Tuesday.
