Wandering Child Re-United with Mother
The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office says a child found wandering along Washtenaw Avenue early this morning had been reunited with his mother.
Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the 2000 block of Washtenaw Avenue around 1:52 a.m. Sunday after someone called, worried the child was going to be struck by a vehicle.
Deputies found the 6 or 7 year old boy walking toward a Taco Bell restaurant. The child was unharmed, but was wearing nothing but a diaper. He was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.
The sheriff's office says the child had been spending the night locally with his mother, who was visiting a friend. When the mother woke up, the boy was gone.
Mother and child, who live in Jackson, have been re-united.
