MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Police say a 13-year-old girl who was carried off a Metro Transit bus in Minneapolis has been found safe at home.

The girl turned up Saturday morning. Investigators say it appears the man who took her off was distantly related. While Metro Transit Police initially feared a kidnapping, they spoke with all parties involved and say they don't expect charges.

The incident happened late Friday. Metro Transit authorities say the girl was riding with her younger brother, who wanted to get off the bus but she refused. He gave up and got off.

Authorities say the man who carried her off the bus witnessed the disagreement. They say he tried talking to her, but she didn't recognize him, and he took her off the bus a few stops later.
