    Possible child abduction reported in Bonner Springs
    A group of boys were playing about 5 p.m. Friday in Lion’s Park [....] when they saw a man in a white van drive up.

    The boys told police that the man got out of the van and grabbed a child around the waist, covering the child’s mouth with his hand.
    [BSPD's Lt. Rick] Schubert said police have not had any reports of a missing child. “We don’t know if we had a parent disciplining a child or if it was an abduction or something else,” he said

    The Bonner Springs police department is asking the public for more information to help determine whether a child was abducted Friday at Lions Park.

    Lt. Rick Schubert said two 10-year-old boys reported seeing a white, bald male wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans grab a small boy around the waist with one arm, while using the other to cover his mouth. The boy was said to be about four feet tall wearing shorts and, per the two witnesses, had his hair styled in a “Justin Bieber haircut.”

    The boys reported seeing this occur between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Friday. After grabbing the boy, the man put him in a white van with windows and drove away.

    As of noon Saturday, no additional information had come forward and no child was reported missing, Schubert said. He added that the two boys who witnessed the event weren’t supposed to be at the park at that time, which is why there was a delay in reporting what they saw.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I hope that this didn't happen. That means that these boys need some time in juvie for falsely reporting such a serious crime.

    “It’s just very suspicious circumstances,” Schubert said. “It could be a parent disciplining an unruly child.
    At this point, we’re not sure what we’ve got, but we’re sure the boys saw something.”


    This happened a couple times in Utah... they issued an Amber Alert.
    I'm glad they are trying to verify it in this situation.

    The articles don't say, I was wondering if the abducted child was with anybody at the park? The abducted child sounds way too young to be hanging out at a park alone.
