The police in Trollhättan has reported that a woman is suspected for kidnapping her own son, taking him out of his nursery school and disappearing with him in the back of her car, reported Expressen, after it emerged that the boy's father has sole custody.

The woman arrived at her son's nursery early on Wednesday morning and the boy climbed in to her car without objections. Staff and teachers did not realise what happened and were not responsible for "guarding the boy in any particular way", reported Expressen.

The mother lives in Holland and it appears the police have her on their records already. They said they have sent a "notification of her whereabouts" prior to last week's developments.
