LINCOLN, NE - A 3-year-old boy, feared missing by his mother, was found safe and sound inside an arcade claw machine in Nebraska on Tuesday, KOLH-TV reports.

Police were called to a home for a report of a missing child.

At the same time, employees at nearby Madsen's Bowling and Billiards found the missing child playing with toys inside their claw machine, where he became stuck after apparently crawling inside.

Employees said by the time the vending people arrived an officer and a family member also came into the business.

Police say he was happily playing with stuffed animals inside the machine.

The boy's mother told police she was in the bathroom and he must have slipped out of an unlocked door.

The boy was freed without injury and reunited with his mother.
