Philadelphia police say a 9-year-old boy was abducted while playing at a city recreation center, but later escaped from a car trunk.

Investigators say it happened Tuesday afternoon in the city's East Germantown section. Philly.com reports police say the boy was grabbed by a white man in his 50s, who put the boy in the trunk of an older model gray Ford sedan and drove off.

Police say that the man stopped after about 30 minutes and opened up the trunk at an unknown location. The boy then fled and was found by a woman who called police.

The police department's Special Victims Unit is investigating and searching for the suspect.
