Ferndale student reported missing found; 2 suspects in custody

Ferndale — A high school student who was reported missing in a possible child abduction Wednesday was recovered safely, police said Thursday. 

A female student at Ferndale High School was said to have been abducted from a gas station while fueling her car between classes, said Superintendent Dania Bazzi in a letter posted on Ferndale Public School's Facebook page. 

The student was found later that afternoon, said Bazzi, and was back with her family. 

Two suspects were in custody Thursday, according to Officer Jillian Mahlmeister with the Ferndale Police Department, and the department will seek charges with the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office on Friday. 

Investigators are working with the FBI and did not provide more information. 

"I urge you to speak with your child today. Even if they do not know this student personally, an incident like this taking place near their school can be traumatic," said Bazzi. "We will have counselors available at Ferndale High School for any students who need to speak with someone about yesterdays events."
