Pinellas Park, Florida - A 7-year-old boy was found wandering alone near 78th Avenue at 55 Way North in Pinellas Park.
Pinellas Park Police say the mentally challenged boy walked up to a house in the 7800 block of 55th Way around 4 a.m. Wednesday. When police arrived they were not able to communicate with him because of his disability, so they had a K9 do a reverse door-to-door search to find out where he came from.
The child's home was located about four houses away. Police say the boy's mother had done all she could to prevent him from wandering off, even going so far as locking three locks on the front door, which he managed to unlock.
Mother and child have been reunited and Child Protective Services says there was no negligence and no charges will be filed.
