Kansas City police say they have found the parents of a young boy who was wandering unsupervised Wednesday morning outside Phyllis Wheatley Elementary School at 2415 Agnes Ave.
The boy told officers he is 4 years old, police said. He had been seen earlier in the morning near Montgall Park at 22nd Street and Kansas Avenue.
Officer Darin Snapp, a Police Department spokesman, said the child’s parents have been located and that there appeared to be a misunderstanding between relatives as to who was supposed to be watching the child.
No charges will be filed, Snapp said, but the Missouri Department of Social Services is investigating.
