BOYNTON BEACH (CBSMiami) – A 3-year-old girl was found alone on the street but has since been reunited with her mother.
Boynton Beach Police say a good Samaritan found the girl in the 400 block of South Seacrest Boulevard.
She was found at approximately 5:20 p.m. on Wednesday and brought to the police department.
She is not very verbal so police were asking for the public’s help in tracking down her family.
Shortly after an alert was sent out, the girl’s mother arrived at the police department.
Police say the incident occurred due to a miscommunication between the girl’s mother and father.
According to police, the mother went to the store and left the girl at home with her father, but her father thought she went with her mother to the store.
It was during this time that the girl wandered out of her home and was found by the good Samaritan.
When her mother returned home and noticed the girl missing, she tried calling police but couldn’t get through due to an issue with her phone. She then came to the police department and was reunited with her daughter.
Police say no charges will be filed but the Department of Children and Families has been notified.
