Parents Of A 3-Year Found Barefoot In Birmingham Found
Police have found the family little boy found alone in the street with no shoes in Birmingham last night.
The three-year-old boy, originally thought to be four, was found in Chesterton Avenue, Balsall Heath last night (Thursday) just before 10pm by a member of the public.
Police appealed for information to identify the boy’s parents shortly after 10am this morning (Friday).
An hour later, the boy’s distressed father called police to report his son missing.
The boy was found several streets from his home and taken by officers to a local police station where he was then looked after by Social Services.
Chief Inspector Ian Green, from Birmingham East Police, said: “We are very relieved to be able to hand back the little boy back to his family.
“We will of course be investigating how the boy got out of the house and we’ll be speaking with the family.
“We would like to thank local people and the media for their help, we really appreciate all the shares and re-tweets on social media which we know has reached hundreds of thousands of people.”
Plans for the high speed rail line from London to Birmingham have passed their final big hurdle in Parliament.
