On Monday around 5 in the afternoon, Airdrie RCMP received a call about a possible child abduction in the area of Willowbrook in the city. Child witnesses reported seeing a young boy forcibly placed into a silver 4 door car. Police responded, conducted neighborhood inquires and set up road blocks in Airdrie and the surrounding communities in efforts to locate the suspect vehicle and ID the child. Cst. Rob Frizzell says they were able to identify the family involved and learned that the incident wasn't quite what it seemed.


RCMP commend the witnesses of this situation for calling in the suspicious event and would encourage the public to continue to report all such occurrences in efforts to keep our community safe.
