Milwaukee police say this entire incident is still an active investigation. But they so say Trammell arrived at a district station Friday morning – and they have not made any arrests.

Officials say Trammell's mother said she saw a silver, possibly a Kia or Impala sedan, pull up in front of her residence as Terrence was taking out the trash. The alert says four unknown African American males exited the vehicle, forcefully put Terrence in the vehicle against his will, and drove northbound on 59th Street.
