Police received a report about a child being pulled screaming into a vehicle at the middle school just after 1 p.m., said Lt. David Stevenson.

But, about 20 minutes later, police located the boy unharmed at his mother’s house, Stevenson said. Police do not believe a crime was committed. Stevenson said the incident appears related to a custody dispute. Exactly why the boy was upset is unknown.
