The Casper Police Department has located the person suspected of abducting a child Wednesday morning.

The child had been playing outside at roughly 10:35 a.m. when they were taken by a white man in a black pickup truck, police said. The child was returned to the area a short time later.

Thursday's confirmation that the suspect has been found came from Rebekah Ladd, the department's public information officer.

"Additional details will be coming soon, but we thought it was important to let our community know they can celebrate the Fourth of July without this worry," Ladd said in an email.

This developing story will be updated when more information is made public.
