TORONTO (AP) - Canadian police say a 14-year-old boy was abducted on his way to school as retribution for a big "cocaine heist" allegedly staged by his stepbrother, but the teen has been freed more than a day later after discussions with his abductors.

Toronto police said in a statement late Thursday that the boy was being taken for a medical checkup and more details would be released later.

Police say an alert was issued across Ontario after people reported hearing Shammah Jolayemi crying for help as he was forced into a vehicle near his home Wednesday morning. Police say there was then communication from his alleged abductors.
