They believed he was abducted from a park near his home in North West Roanoke.
As it turns out, Taimere was mistaken for another boy.
Jennifer Miele filed this report after Taimere returned home last night.

American troops are involved in another combat mission in Afghanistan.
A spokesman for the British marines says hundreds of allied soldiers are in the eastern mountains, searching for pockets of al-Qaida and Taliban forces.
It's the first large-scale mission since Operation Anaconda began.
Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has seen the latest video of Osama bin Laden, and he doesn't believe that it's new.
Rumsfeld says the tape could be an attempt to create sympathy for the Palestinians.

The city of Roanoke is facing a two point two million dollar cut in state funding... and a budget that's described as one of the tightest in the last 25 years.

[RUNS= 13]
[OUT Q=for those recommendations.]


Darlene Burcham says the budget is still a work in progress with the possibility of more bad news from the state.

But as it stands, the 194 million dollar spending plan represents a one- point- nine percent increase over the current budget.
It includes a small pay raise for city employees and an increase in funding for public education, but it will also require an increase in the admissions tax, higher fees and a reduction of 35 positions.
No one will lose their job, but the possibility that more than a dozen of those positions would come from the police, fire, and sheriffs departments brought concern from council member Nelson Harris.
