An eight-year-old boy was abducted from a park on Emmanuel Drive, off Soldier Road yesterday evening, but was dropped off near the entrance of the dump on Tonique Williams Darling Highway a short time later, police said today.
Police said the child was taken by a woman who was traveling in a gray vehicle.
Authorities have released a composite sketch of the alleged suspect and are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the Central Detective Unit at 5029991/2, Crime Stoppers at 328- TIPS (8477) or 919.
This incident follows the abduction of a six-year-old girl from her home off Wilton Street shortly after 2 a.m. on Sunday.
She was found unharmed a short time later, according to police.
Two weeks earlier, a three-year-old boy was kidnapped while riding his bicycle in front of his South Beach home.
He was allegedly kidnapped by two women in a silver car and dropped off at a wash house on Joe Farrington Road and Fox Hill Road the following morning.
