YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office says the unmarked school bus that prompted attempted abduction fears in Ypsilanti Township was part of a new transportation provider for another school.

Authorities said the incident was not an abduction scenario.

The sheriff's office said the bus belongs to a transportation company and that "the route and timing of the bus was consistent with the job they were contracted to do."

According to the district, the unmarked school bus was seen stopping in the West Willow neighborhood trying to pick up children. The incident was reported at about 7:20 a.m. in the area of Tyler Road and Buick Avenue.

Authorities said the districts name on the bus had been spray painted over and the driver sped off when a student didn't get on the bus.

No other information was made available.
