Huntington police investigating child found on road

HUNTINGTON, TX (KTRE) - Huntington police have notified CPS for an investigation after a two-year-old boy was found wandering the roads Thursday morning.

Officer James McKenzie said a woman was headed to work around 8:20 a.m. when she saw a boy walking on Gibson Street. She said she came close to hitting him.

Police put out a bulletin on Facebook asking for assistance in finding the child's parents and were able to locate his grandmother.

The grandmother said the boy was with his parents and may have wandered down the road to find her house, McKenzie said.

Police are investigating how the child got out of his parents' house.
