The RCMP is investigating a child abduction in Strathmore, Alta.
Officers said it happened on Tuesday, May 31, when a girl was walking home from her school bus drop-off at around 3:30 p.m.
The youth was approached by two men in a white pick-up truck and was forced into the vehicle and brought to a residence, RCMP said.
The girl has since returned home safely.
“While at that residence, the young female was able to escape and flee the area and was later found by a family member who alerted police,” Staff Sgt. Mark Wielgosz with Strathmore RCMP said.
The girl was found at around 5:30 p.m. by a family member who was looking for her, RCMP said, and police were called shortly after.
