Moscow Region Police Searching for 5-Year-Old Boy

Police are searching for a 5-year-old boy who has disappeared from a playground in the Moscow suburb of Mytishchi, the Interior Ministry said late Sunday.

The boy's mother told police that her son and other children ran around the corner of the building during a game, causing her to lose sight of them temporarily, around 5 p.m. on Sunday.

When the children came back, the woman's son was not with them, a spokesman for the Moscow region branch of the Interior Ministry told the Interfax news agency.
