WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police say a 2-year-old child was found running through a parking lot on Southern Boulevard wearing only a onesie.

Police said the boy, who was wearing no shoes or socks, was found Saturday afternoon.  An officer was called by two people who tried but failed to locate the kid’s family. They took the boy to Giant Eagle to get him a change of diapers and a blanket.

Police said no one had called police to report a missing child.

The boy’s father was tracked down and said he believed the toddler was sleeping. He said he took a nap on the coach and didn’t wake up until officers came to his apartment. He believed his son must have left the apartment while he was sleeping.

Children Services was contacted because police have reported other incidents of child endangering involving the boy, according to a police report.

At this time, no one has been charged.
