Byron, MN (KROC AM News) - A mystery in Byron has been solved.

A 9 year old boy says he was looking for his lost dog around 6:30 Friday evening when a strange man stopped his truck. The boy says the man offered to help him look for the dog and told him to get into the truck. The boy says he ran home and told his mother, who called 911.  

Tuesday night a man called the Olmsted County’s Sheriff’s Office to report he was the man who talked to the boy. The man says he was concerned because the boy did not have a jacket on.  

Sheriff’s Office Captain Scott Behrns says the department is thankful the man called to explain what happened.
