A teenager from Skåne who called his parents to say he had been kidnapped has been found unharmed.

The boy's call set in motion a large police search operation on Wednesday morning. The parents contacted the police as soon as they heard from their son late on Tuesday night, and search parties were sent out immediately.

The teenager reported voluntarily to the police in Svalöv, near Landskrona, on Wednesday morning.

Police focused their search to areas of Svalöv, around 40 kilometres from the young man's home, after detecting signals from his mobile phone in the area.

Helsingborg police spokeswoman Charley Nilsson said the youngster was unharmed.

"It is possible that there was no crime behind the incident."
