Deputies find toddler wandering alone in Lake Worth

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - At about 1:30 Tuesday morning, Palm Beach County deputies found an unattended 3-year-old boy, who identified himself as "Nathan", on the 300 block of South A Street in Lake Worth.

Deputies went from door to door to all the homes in the area, at first not able to locate his parents.
A reverse 911 call was also placed to homes in the immediate area.

The Department of Children and Family Services dispatched a representative to take possession of Nathan.

But the PBSO has confirmed that Nathan's family has been located.

PBSO says Nathan's grandfather was watching TV and saw a picture of the boy an hour after police found him wandering in Lake Worth.

His grandfather called PBSO to identify him.
