FORT MYERS, Fla. - The 10 year boy told police he was waiting at his bus stop on Franklin Street and Central Avenue around 7 AM Monday morning, when two men grabbed him and put him into their car.
"Devastated, devastated, hurt, devastated. Never think that in a moment that would happen to one of your kids," says the boys mother.
The child was driven around for several hours before he was able to escape in the area of Fort Myers Middle School and ran home, according to police.
"He said he never thought he was going to see us again," says the boys mother.
The mother is still in shock, because she claims, the school never alerted her, that her son wasn't in class.
WINK News checked, and while a school district spokesperson can't speak specificall about this case, she says, all parents get a call about absences, if their information is updated.
The mother also tells WINK News, this isn't the first time her son ran into those suspects. SHe says, they allegedly tried to lure him two months ago, by offering him two dollars.
"Parents just be there, take your kids to school, you never know what may happen in the moment," said the boy's mother.
Police say the suspects are an older white male wearing a black shirt, large build with salt and pepper hair. The black male is described as younger, wearing a brown shirt with a Mohawk style hair. The vehicle driven by the suspects is described as a dark blue four-door SUV with blue leather interior.
Through a follow up investigation and neighborhood canvass, detectives say they determined the vehicle and suspects have been seen frequenting the area.
Police say they have stepped up patrols in the area and will continue to investigate. FMPD said to report any suspicious activity by calling the police immediately.
Police are also looking to see if a similar incident if two men and an offer of two dollars, back on April 19th along Evans Avenue, is related.
