CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A 33-year-old fair worker is in custody after a 5-year-old boy was kidnapped from a Casper bowling alley and found two hours later near the fairgrounds.

Police say the boy had no visible injuries from the incident that occurred Monday evening.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/29Yto6z ) that the suspect’s name was not released by police, who only described him as not being from Wyoming. He was being held at the Casper police station on Tuesday.

The child has been reunited with his family.

Police say the boy was reported missing from the bowling alley at about 6 p.m. He was found about two hours later near the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds by a citizen who took him to police.
