MIAMI (CBS4) – A hearing will be held this week to see if a north Miami-Dade toddler who was found wandering the streets on Saturday should be returned to his parents.

Later Saturday, police said the parents were located and charged with child neglect. The child was then turned over to family members who will take care of him pending the outcome of the hearing.
