Police checked and found no reports of missing students or children in the surrounding schools.
After several hours of canvassing the area and conducting a thorough investigation, detectives were unable to confirm that an abduction had occurred. The investigation, however, is ongoing.
Neighbors aren’t really sure what to make of all the police activity in their neighborhood.
“I don’t know what to think about it. It could happen anywhere,” said neighbor John Berrow.
“I heard there was some kind of abduction over here but this is a pretty safe neighborhood. I’ve been living here for the last ten years. You get the odd things going on back and forth but pretty much it’s safe,” said neighbor Sandro Licursi.MORE NEWS: Pivoting In Pandemic: Miami Maintenance Co.
