Las Vegas police are investigating after a northwest valley middle school student was reportedly abducted Thursday, officials said.
An employee at Cadwallader Middle School, 7775 W. Elkhorn Road, near North Buffalo Drive, called police about 11:20 a.m. to report a juvenile was kidnapped, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Aden OcampoGomez said. Clark County School District spokesman David Roddy said the child was a student at the school.
A letter sent home to parents from the middle school said one of the school’s students was “abducted and assaulted” while walking to school.
Police said the child had been found and was at the school when police were called.
Officers were searching area homes for cameras in an effort to identify an abductor, OcampoGomez said.
“Obviously, they’re doing everything to help out the victim,” he said.
Police were still trying to locate the scene of the abduction early Thursday afternoon, OcampoGomez said.
