UPDATE: Columbus police confirm no abduction attempt at Britt David Park after little league sends warning

Little league in Columbus sends warning after child reportedly goes missing from park

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A little league in Columbus shared a warning after a reported incident.

The Pioneer Little League says they received reports that a child went missing from Britt David Park Monday night.

Columbus police have confirmed there was no attempted abduction at the park.

According to Major J.D Hawk, a child wandered away from their parents while at the park. Three good Samaritans found the child and confusion between those trying to help, led two of the individuals to think the third person was trying to abduct the child.

The Pioneer Little League is reminding the public that child safety is a priority and to notify a board member if you ever see or hear anything concerning.

Good afternoon Pioneer family. We wanted to make you aware of an incident that happened last night at Britt David Park....
