At 6:24 a.m. Tuesday, Delphos Police were called to the 800 block of South Main Street by an individual who advised that a small child was located wandering around the area alone.

Upon officers’ arrival, they located the child, who appeared to be approximately 2 years old. Officers initially did not know the child’s name or who the child belonged to.

The initial check of the area did not reveal where the child came from or the child’s identity. At that time, officers transported the child to the Delphos Police Department and Allen County Children Services were contacted.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., officers were doing a door- to-door search in the 700/800 blocks of South Main, which resulted in locating a subject who was able to identify the child. The parents of the child were then contacted by phone.

The parents advised they had dropped the child off at the babysitter’s house in the 800 block of South Main a couple hours earlier, were now at work and were unaware the child was out wandering the area alone.

Police eventually located and spoke to all parties involved, including the individuals who were supposed to be babysitting the child and the child’s parents.

All parties came to the Delphos Police Department and were interviewed by Allen County Children Services. The child was released to the child’s parents and ACCS will follow up on the incident.

The child was found in good health and had no injuries to report from this incident.
