Late 80’s early 90’s movie where a boy is kidnapped and returned home

The basic plot revolves around two young boy’s who live with their father. ( the mother died or is no longer around)  They have a dog. I vaguely remember something about a weird neighbor they watch  from a tree in there yard looking over a white fence.  Anyway…    One day they’re playing in the front yard and the youngest boy is lured into a yellow car (by the neighbor)? he is taken. I think he is  kept in the woods for a while. When he returns he is a mute, refuses to speak about the abduction. His father and brother try everything.

The movie ends with the boy finally talking a little.  There is hugging and crying… I watched this movie as a child and it really disturbed me. I have spent my adult life trying to find out what is was!

Any help would be great. It is definitely not the movies “without a trace”,  “my name is Steven”, “Jack the Bear”.
