HOUSTON A little boy found walking alone near train tracks in southwest Houston early Thursday was happily reunited with his family.
According to Houston police, someone spotted the boy before 4 a.m., called 911 and took him to the HPD station on Westplace Drive.
Police said its possible the boys parents work separate shifts, and somehow he simply walked out of his home without them knowing it.
Police said the child appeared to be in good conditionand in good spirits.
He seems clean, well taken care of, said HPD Officer Robert Clasen. We gave him some water and some cookies, and were just waiting to see where, if we get a missing child call.
About two hours later, the parents called police and indicated they were on the way to the station to pick up the boy, police said.
Police said had they not heard from the parents by 7 a.m., the boy would have been turned over to C.P.S. An HPD officer followed the parents as they took the boy home around 6 a.m.
