Lockdowns at two Big Walnut Schools were lifted after sheriff's deputies received a report of a weapon in the area.

According to Big Walnut Local Schools Superintendent Steve Mazzi, a child with a gun was spotted in a neighborhood between General Rosecrans Elementary School and Big Walnut Middle School around 7:30 a.m.

Authorities searched but did not locate a child with a weapon.
