MIAMI – The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken over an investigation into a reported abduction in SW Miami-Dade.
Police said the call came in Thursday, at approximately 2:30 p.m., as Miami-Dade police responded to the 4700 block of SW 87th Place.
Authorities confirmed their investigation involved a woman and two children.
Shortly after 9 p.m. the woman and the children were found safe within two miles from where they were reportedly abducted.
Now, the FBI will be looking into what happened.
Under the “Lindbergh Law,” the FBI has jurisdiction to investigate any reported mysterious disappearance or kidnapping involving a child. “There does not have to be a ransom demand nor does the child have to cross state lines or be missing for 24 hours before the FBI will become involved.”
Images from the scene showed part of the neighborhood roped off with yellow tape.
There were also several police cruisers, as well as, an evidence police truck.
The investigation continued into the night.
