Around 8:40 am, the police in Amsterdam received a report about a suspicious situation in the De Pijp district in Amsterdam. The police now report that it was a kidnapping that took place in the Tweede Jan Steenstraat. The boy would have been pushed into a white van by some people.
The agents managed to trace the van on the A27, near Groenekan. Several warning shots were fired on the highway. Due to the police action, the road near Bilthoven in the direction of Utrecht was temporarily closed.
During the police action on the highway, the boy could be freed: he turned out to be unharmed. Three suspects were immediately arrested. It concerns a 36-year-old man from Weesp, a 35-year-old man from Amsterdam and a 29-year-old man from Almere.

Police would not comment on the cause at this time. However, the police are calling on witnesses to report and share any images.
