FORDHAM HEIGHTS, the Bronx — Police say a toddler who somehow made his way out of a New York City home and wandered the streets in the middle of the night has been reunited safely with his family.
Police were alerted around 2 a.m. Sunday that an unattended child had been spotted at the corner of Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue in the Bronx. It’s near the Fordham Heights neighborhood.
Officers found the roughly 2-year-old boy wearing a T-shirt and diapers. He didn’t seem injured but was taken to a hospital to be checked out.
A relative was apparently caring for the boy. Once a parent learned he was missing and called authorities, the family was reunited.
No criminal charges are expected.
