Boy found in Wheaton reunited with family
UPDATE: The boy found in Wheaton was reunited with his family, according to the Montgomery County police.
ORIGINAL STORY: A boy who police said has not been able to tell them his name or where he lives was found crying Thursday at about 6 p.m. as he walked alone between Veirs Mill Road and Randolph Road near Connecticut Avenue in Wheaton.
A citizen who saw the child alerted police.
The boy appears to be 2 or 3 years old, police said. He is approximately 3’ tall, and weighs between 30 and 40 pounds.
When found, he was wearing a red-hooded coat, a blue shirt with an "Athletic Team" logo, black nylon pants, and brown laced boots.
Police did a door-to-door survey of nearby homes and apartments but could not locate the child's parents or guardian.
The boy is in emergency foster care.
Anyone who recognizes the child is asked to call the Montgomery County Police Family Crimes Division at 240-773-5400 or the police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000. Callers may remain anonymous.
