A toddler between one and two years old was found wandering the streets of Temecula, unsupervised, on New Year’s Day, according to authorities.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said officers with the Temecula Police Department were called to the 42300 block of Moraga Road, near Rancho California Road, just after 4 p.m. Friday after someone found a child walking alone near the street.
Officers took custody of the boy, whom they said was between 12 and 24 months old, and tried to find his parents or guardians. Officers urged anyone with information to contact the police department.
Several hours later, at around 7:30 p.m., the child’s mother was located.
