Cops in Miramar, Fla., have so far been unable to locate the parents or guardians of a toddler who good Samaritans found wandering around a neighborhood by himself on Sunday morning with no socks or shoes and apparently a full diaper.
No parent has come forward so far. Perhaps no one has reported a missing child that fits the infant’s description, either.
Neighbors reportedly spotted the boy, who is estimated to be about age 2 or 3, and who was unknown to them, and asked around with no luck. They then called police.
Said concerned resident Lori Rodriguez, “We walked around and looked to see if anyone was nearby. None of us have ever seen the baby before,” WPLG-TV reported. “I’m beside myself.”
Officers then canvassed the area for his family for about two hours but came up empty even after knocking on many doors. Cops also deployed a K9 to assist in the search.
Authorities in the Miami-area city who have widely shared his photo on social media have requested the public’s help in locating the little boy’s family or shedding light on his name.
The contact number for anyone with information is (954) 602-4000.
The Department of Children and Families is providing care for the child while the investigation continues.
Police in the Broward County community indicated Sunday night that offices apparently spent 12 hours unsuccessfully trying to find the boy’s loved ones.
“His family has NOT been located. Officers spent hours canvassing the area, knocking on doors, speaking w/ neighbors. No one recognizes the child, who appears to be 2-3 years old. As the investigation continues, we urge anyone with info. on his identity to call 954-602-4000.”

This situation seems to be the reverse of what police usually have to deal with in these kinds of situations. That is, in this case, the child is found, but the parents may possibly be missing, at least for the time being.
Some Twitter users weighed in with recommendations about how to resolve the mystery.
Also, two years old doesn’t walk for more than 30 min or so. Set a parameter around where he was found and start knocking in doors and handing out flyers. Something tells me that this kid is not from here but from out of state.

Please do not give him back to the parents without an investigation! If he is missing, and they cared,they would be frantic. This is not normal. I fear something worse will happen, if returned to an unwanted home.

If you need a foster parent we would love to do it. I’m in shock no one has claimed him
