Mom calls 9-1-1, says man is driving away with her children and thinks he might harm them

Authorities have determined no violence took place during a recent visitation dispute.

A woman had accused a male suspect of driving away with her children on North Butler Road, according to a report from the Huron County Sheriff's Office. She also suspected the man might harm her children, the report states.

Dispatchers received the 9-1-1 domestic-related call at 5:21 p.m. Saturday. Deputies responded and interviewed the woman.

"There was no act of violence at all," Maj. Greg Englund said. "It was over a visitation."

Englund said a father had contacted the sheriff's office about not seeing his children in several months, but he wasn't able to reach the complainant. The sheriff's spokesman was unsure if the call related to the same case.

"This was civil in nature," Englund said about Saturday's call, explaining that if the two parents couldn't come to an agreement, they'd have to speak to their attorneys and go to court.
