LINCOLN, Neb. (WKRG)  - A mother in Lincoln, Nebraska has quite a story to tell involving her 3-year-old boy. She couldn't find him inside their apartment and frantically called police.

He apparently wanted a new toy and went to great lengths to get one. He was found across the street at the bowling alley inside a toy machine.

The little boy crawled inside and was sitting with dozens of stuffed animals.

Bowling alley employees called the machine's vendor. He came and unlocked the machine to let the boy out.

Employees also flagged down the police officers who were looking for the missing child. The officers gave mom the news and she was reunited with her little boy.
