Metro Police have located an 8-year-old boy taken from Indianapolis Public School 79 Friday morning.
Police say Kirshawn Walker was found safe and taken into police custody in the area of Warman and Walnut Street on Indianapolis' west side Saturday, after 11 a.m.
Police made an arrest on Haugh Street nearby but have not confirmed who it is.
On Friday, IPS told Fox59 News that they made an error in protocol and released Kirshawn into the custody of Michelle Walker and D'Anne Walker. The school was not cleared to release the boy, but did after Kirshawn identified Michelle as his grandmother.
Michelle was not on the school's current emergency contact list and was not allowed to walk out the door with the boy, but she did.
"It doesn't appear that the school employee checked that list before releasing the child this morning. Something happened that shouldn't have happened," said Kim Hooper, IPS spokesperson.
A Connecticut court order gives Kirshawn's father custodial rights.
"Totally sick. I'm irate, barely keeping myself together." said Charles Muldrow, Kirshawn's father. "I was just in here yesterday checking on him being in class and for this to happen the very next day, I'm very very upset with IPS as a system," Muldrow said.
