Update: Child Reunited with Family (Photo) - 06/30/20

After local news coverage of this found child, a tip came in with information which led to the re-uniting of the child with family. We greatly appreciate local media partner assistance with getting this information out so quickly, which resulted in a positive resolution.

A correction was added to the below release; it was North Precinct, not East as originally stated.



At 6:44 am. on June 30, 2020, North Precinct Officers were called to multiple reports of a child seen wandering in the area of Northeast 122nd Avenue and Sandy Boulevard.

Officers searched the area and located a little boy believed to be about 4 years-old. He did not appear to be injured. He is described as an African-American male, about 3 ?1/2 feet tall and about 80 pounds. He was wearing a t-shirt, but no pants. He is also believed to be developmentally delayed. He has been asking for his "grandma."

Officers provided clothing to the child and remain with him. They are making attempts in the surrounding neighborhood to locate the parent/guardian of this child.

If anyone has information about who the child is or where he resides, please contact (503) 823-3333.
