Boy, 9, Found Walking Along Ohio Highway Returned To Family

CREATED May 23, 2014
ROSSFORD, Ohio - Police in Ohio said they have returned a 9-year-old boy to his family after he was found walking along Interstate 75 on Thursday night.

Rossford police Chief Glenn Goss told WTOL that the boy was returned to his father, who lives in Toledo, on Friday morning. He was found walking along the highway Thursday night south of Toledo.

Officials told the station that the boy ran away from his residence in Toledo after arguing with his father. It was determined he was headed to Tennessee to see his mother.

The boy had initially told officers he was abducted by masked men while walking home from a friend's house in Tennessee on Tuesday. He said his abductors pushed him out of the car on the interstate.

WTOL reported that Tennessee authorities said they had no reports of an abduction or kidnapping.
