Toddler found wandering alone in dirty nappy as desperate search for parents begins


Police are desperately trying to find the parents of a toddler who was found alone in a dirty nappy and wearing no shoes.

The boy, who is believed to be around two years old, was found wandering alone in Miramar, Florida, on Sunday morning.

As of Monday afternoon, the child’s parents have yet to be found, according to police.

Lori Rodriguez told  Local10  that a neighbour saw the kid wandering and was asking around to see if anyone had any information.

“We walked around and looked to see if anyone was nearby. None of us have ever seen the baby before.”

Police were then called, with officers spending around 90 minutes searching for his parents.

She said the little boy wasn’t wearing shoes or socks, and needed his nappy changed.

The boy remains in the care of the Department of Children and Families.

In a Facebook post earlier on Monday, the Mirama Police Department said: “We want to thank the community & news media who have assisted us by sharing the picture of the little boy found yesterday morning.

“A special thanks to the Pembroke Pines Police Department who assisted us in the search, and the Miami-Dade Police Department for their bloodhound.

“Unfortunately, we do not have an update.

“His family has NOT been located. Officers spent hours canvassing the area, knocking on doors, speaking with neighbours and even those who drove through the area.

“No one recognizes the child, who appears to be 2-3 years old and wears diapers.”
