Scottsdale police halt investigation of possible abduction

Police in Scottsdale say they couldn't find anything to substantiate a report of a possible child abduction in the area of Sonoran Sky Elementary, located at 75th Street and Sweetwater, and have closed down their investigation.

They said a person reported seeing a man in a red baseball cap grab a school-aged boy Thursday afternoon and leave the area of Sonoran Sky Elementary.

But police said all students at Sonoran Sky Elementary are accounted, that nobody reported a missing child and that all investigative avenues had been exhausted.

According to police, it's possible that that the incident reported as a possible abduction was actually a parent picking up his child or something similar.

Police said they'd still like an explanation for the incident.
