SANTA FE, N.M. — The FBI and Santa Fe police say the apparent abduction of a young girl Tuesday was instead a domestic dispute and both people have been found safe.

An FBI spokesman says in a statement late Tuesday that an investigation revealed both of the people involved are accounted for and their identities will not be released because no charges have been filed.

The incident was reported near the Tuscany Apartments in Santa Fe around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses told authorities they saw a man throw a girl into the back of a car.
