KANSAS CITY, Missouri – A northeast Kansas City, Mo., child is safe with the city’s Division of Family Services after being found wandering unsupervised near the 100 block of White Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

Around 11 a.m. KCPD officers were dispatched to the area of St. John’s and White Avenues for a call of a juvenile wandering alone. The boy, who Sgt. Harold Headrick said was around two or three-years-old, was found by area construction workers less than a block away from his house.. Northeast patrol officer and a neighbor sat with the boy in a squad car while they tried to contact family.

At around 12:30 p.m., the boy was taken into custody by the Division of Family Services until family could be found. KCPD did not release the name of the child.

Headrick said the young boy was in good spirits and dressed for the cold weather.

“He was happy to be with the neighbor,” Headrick said.

The Sergeant said he wasn’t sure how the boy got out of his house or if someone was watching him at home. He added the boy was taken with family services employees because he needs to be released to family. Headrick said any criminal charges will be left up to detectives.

“We’ll take an offense report and forward it to detectives for an investigation,” Headrick said.
