SPRAGUE, Wash. - The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office has released the 911 tapes from the attempted child abduction in Sprague, Washington over the weekend. 

A woman can be heard telling dispatchers that a man had grabbed a two-year-old boy from the park and ran off. The woman then tells the dispatcher that people are running around the town looking for the man, but they hadn't found him yet. 

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the incident. Witnesses say a thin, white man grabbed a 22-month-old boy out of a stroller at a park in Sprague and then ran off. Surveillance video shows the man running away with the child, and the child's siblings giving chase. The man ended up dropping the boy and running off. Despite efforts by the Sheriff's Office and citizens, the man still has not been found. 

If you have any information you think might help detectives find the man, please call the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 509-725-3501 or 509-725-9261.
