RCMP investigate possible abduction in Warman

At approximately 9:15 p.m. on Tuesday May 23, 2017, Warman RCMP responded to a call of a 12-year-old male wandering on a range road just north-west of Warman. Shortly after the initial call, police received another call reporting the same youth missing from a local playground.
