Early police reunite wandering toddler with family

A potentially tragic situation had a happy ending when Early police found the parents of a toddler who had wandered away from his babysitter’s home to the city park Wednesday evening. Early Police Chief David Mercer said the toddler was found by an alert family…

“The last family to leave the park just happened to see him by the playground,” Chief Mercer said. “The lights were out, and just the security lights were on. They said they barely noticed him.”

Chief Mercer said the department posted a picture of the child online, and were quickly contacted by the boy’s mother, who said she had left him with an adult relative.
