Investigators say threatening phone calls made to a Scottsdale daycare earlier this week were coming from Ohio.

According to the Scottsdale police department, two kids in Ohio allegedly called Bright Horizons Child Care earlier this week and threatened to kidnap children.

It has since been determined that the incident was a hoax, officials said.

No word as to why the calls were made, or why the daycare was targeted.

The center was locked up on Thursday and Friday but is expected to reopen Monday morning. 

Scottsdale detectives are now working with authorities in Ohio to investigate the case.
