Your description of the problem is not very clear so I am to able to understand the problem with the engine. I hope my guess is correct.
The screeching noise could have been a fault with the drive belts which resulted in the water pump not working correctly and the overheating. If coolant level is correct, I don't see any major problem with the engine as the overheating did not reach maximum.
If engine can be started, recheck the drive belts and related components for bearing seizure.
Get a second opinion.
