BALTIMORE (WFLA) — Police say they have identified the parents or guardians of a boy who was found wandering alone on the streets of Baltimore, Maryland early Saturday morning.

The Baltimore Police Department says the boy, who appears to be around 3 to 4 years old, was spotted wandering in a residential area on the city’s east side around 3 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 27, and that he didn’t know his name or age.

“When officers arrived at the location, they spoke with a concerned citizen who stated that he saw a 3 to a 4-year-old child walking in the street by himself,” the department said on Facebook Saturday. “The child doesn’t know where he lives or his name.”

According to authorities, the boy was taken to the hospital for a medical assessment and appeared to be in good condition.

Two days after police asked for the public’s help in identifying the boy’s parents or guardian, they announced that someone had come forward.

“Please cancel the lookout for this little guy’s parents/guardian,” the Baltimore Police Department wrote on Facebook on Monday, Nov. 29. “The have been located and are communicating with Child Protective Services.”
