With the number of abductions seemingly up on the national level, several of which have been very public, the Eaton Rapids Police Department didn't take any chances this week.
When a seven-year-old boy reported that a man had asked him to help find a lost dog, the police responded immediately. They issued a press release with a description of the man and where the incident occurred.
However, upon further investigation, the police determined the man really had lost his dog and was not trying to lure children.
Saturday, the Eaton Rapids Police released a statement confirming that the man's dog was in fact missing.
