In a scary moment where a family reported their 3 year old missing, everything ended well.

In fact, the child wasn't harmed and probably didn't even realize he was missing when he was found here -- in a claw machine. His mother called 911 from home to say that she was in the bathroom and the boy was missing. Apparently, the 24 year old figured out that he must have slipped his way out their unlocked apartment door and went around the corner to Madsen's Bowling and Billiards in their town in Nebraska.

Employees noticed the child inside and notified police where he was freed by the vending machine workers.
