ATLANTA - A 9-year-old Atlanta boy who police say was abducted from his driveway sang the gospel song "Every Praise" until the man released him several hours later.
Willie Myrick recounted the story at a recent gathering in his honor. He says as he sang, the man drove around and was cursing at him to be quiet before eventually letting him go unharmed last month.
Police have a sketch of the suspect and are searching for him. ABC affiliate WSBTV reported that the boy said he was in his front yard when a black man in his 20s with a light complexion, long to medium dreadlocks and a tattoo on his bicep, snatched him and threw him into his silver or gray Honda Civic. Myrick said the man drove him around for several hours before releasing him unharmed.
“He was cursing at me telling me to shut up and didn't want to hear a word from me," Willie told WSBTV. “He said if I told anyone, he would hurt me, like in a bad way.”
A group of churches, organizations and businesses are offering a $10,000 reward to help find the abductor.
