A middle school student who claimed she was sexually assaulted on the way to school Wednesday has recanted her story, officials said. A letter sent to parents of students at Twin Creeks Middle School said the student was assaulted around 7:30am in a driveway near her home around Spring Lakes Haven Circle and Wrexham Springs Court in the Spring Lakes subdivision.

The Harris County Sheriff's Department says they were alerted by the 12-year-old girl's father that she is recanting her originial story. It's unknown why the girl's story is changing.

A statement from the Harris County Sheriff's Department added, "Our investigators take all allegations very seriously, especially when it involves a crime against a child."

Authorities are continuing to investigate.
