Montgomery police seek family of lost boy
Update, 2:15 p.m.: Montgomery County police report that the boy has been reunited with his family. Police say more details will be released later today.
Original post: Montgomery County police are seeking the public's help in identifying a young child who was found in Wheaton, Thursday night.
The boy was found walking along Connecticut Avenue between Viers Mill and Randolph roads about 6 p.m. He was crying.
Despite a door-to-door search, officers have not been able to immediately locate the child’s parent or guardian, and because of his age, the child has been unable to tell officers where he lives.
Police say the child is black, 2 to 3 years old, with very short black hair. He is approximately 3 feet tall and weighs 30 to 40 pounds. When he was found, he was wearing a red-hooded coat, a blue shirt with an "Athletic Team" logo, black nylon pants and brown lace-up boots.
Anyone who recognizes the boy should 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.
