BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX)-- The Boynton Beach Police Department received a phone call at 5:52 Tuesday morning from an off-duty Boynton Beach firefighter who found a 2-year-old boy in the middle of the road at Congress Avenue and Boynton Beach Boulevard in Boynton Beach.
Officers knocked on doors in the neighboring communities in an effort to locate the boy's parents, but were unable to find either of them.
Dispatch also sent out a reverse 911 call to homes in that area.
Shortly after the boy's photo was released to news outlets, someone remembered him wandering in the Boynton Landings community previously and called police.
Officers responded to an apartment in Boynton Landings and identified the boy's mother and her boyfriend. Originally police thought they found the child's father, but it was the mother's boyfriend.
The boy was taken to the Boynton Beach Police Department. Officers say he is smiling, eating snacks and watching cartoons.
The boy's mother is in custody and will face a child neglect charge.
The Florida Department of Children and Families has been notified and will make the determination as to who will take custody of him.
Police said this isn't the first time the child has been found wandering. Witnesses told police the child had been found wandering the neighborhood alone before Tuesday's incident.
