TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Tallahassee Police Department is investigating a reported kidnapping that occurred around 5 p.m. on Wednesday at Tom Brown Park.

Officials say that is when the citizen called police.
Authorities say the arriving officers formed search parties and searched the surrounding foot trails, bike trails and neighborhoods.
TPD says officers are continuing their search of the area on foot with K9 units, on bicycles and from the air with the assistance of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Aviation Unit.
