     Cleveland Indians option Cody Anderson to Class AAA, recall Kyle Crockett

Cody Anderson ran out of leash Tuesday night at Target Field.

The Indians sent their struggling right-handed starter to Class AAA Columbus before Wednesday night's game and recalled lefty Kyle Crockett. The Indians will go with a four-man rotation until May 7 when they play Kansas City at Progressive Field.

They could then recall Anderson to make that start because he will have been in the minors for the required 10 days. If Anderson still isn't straightened out by then, they will have to recall another starter.

Manager Terry Francona said Anderson is their choice to make that May 7th start.

"The plan is for him definitely to come back," said Francona. "This next start, he kind of stays right in line for it."

Until then Crockett will give Francona an eight-man bullpen. The Indians started the season with an eight-man pen, but it shrunk to seven when Trevor Bauer came out of the pen to replace injured starter Carlos Carrasco. Bauer will make his first start of the season Saturday against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

     Local winners to compete in Odyssey of the Mind world competition

Six teams of students from local public and private schools are headed to a worldwide competition in Iowa in June after winning competitions held in Newport News earlier this month.

The statewide Odyssey of the Mind competition was held at Menchville High School on April 16. Odyssey of the Mind is a program that involves problem solving for students in kindergarten through college. It allows participants to think creatively about solutions to open-ended questions or problems.

Woodside High School placed first in the high-school level "Something Fishy" problem, and a team from Warwick High School came in second in the "Fins, Furs, Feathers and Friends" competition.

Trinity Lutheran School, a private school in Newport News, placed first in the "No-Cycle Recycle" elementary school level. This is the first year the K-8 school has fielded an Odyssey of the Mind team, Head of School Kevin Goetz said.

Three Poquoson schools placed in the top two in their respective levels of the "Shark Attack!" competition: Poquoson Elementary School came in second; Poquoson Middle School in first; and Poquoson High School in first.

The 23 teams that placed first or second in the Virginia-wide competition go on to the 2016 Odyssey of the Mind World Finals Competition at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa May 25 through 28.

While there, the teams will compete against students from about a dozen other countries, including Poland, Czech Republic, South Korea and Singapore.

     Reported abduction attempt in Poquoson declared unfounded

Poquoson police have determined that an elementary school student's report of an attempted abduction Thursday afternoon was made up, and the report has been declared unfounded, said police spokesman Clifford Bowen in a news release.

Bowen said the child who reported the attempted abduction admitted the events described never occurred after a follow-up interview with police on Sunday afternoon.

The original report raised concerns because of inconsistencies in the child's story, said Bowen.

     Poquoson child nearly abducted after school bus drops him off

Poquoson police said an elementary school child was nearly abducted after school Thursday.

Officers were alerted of a possible abduction just after 4 p.m. in the first block of East Sandy Point Road, said Chief Cliff Bowen.

At the location, a child told police he had exited his school bus at the intersection of Browns Neck Road and Phillips Road when an unmarked green work van, with orange spray paint on the rear doors, drove up to him.

Both occupants of the van exited and the passenger grabbed the right shoulder strap of the child's book bag, Bowen said. The boy was able to pull away and ran toward his residence. The van then left, heading westbound on Browns Neck Road toward Hunts Neck Road.

Anyone with information can call the police department at 757-868-3501 or 757-868-3370.

The police department advises parents to make sure their children are under adult supervision when waiting at a bus stop or being dropped off.
