Toddler Left At Detroit Bus Stop Reunited With Family

DETROIT (WWJ) – A toddler left alone at a Detroit bus stop on Monday has been reunited with her mother.

Police say they released the girl to her aunt early Tuesday morning.

The girl’s mother allegedly said she left the child in the care of the toddler’s father.

Sgt. Richard Knox of the DPD’s Child Abuse Unit told WWJ Newsradio 950 they don’t believe the child’s mother was involved in the abandonment.

“From the story we were told, the mother seems like she is not involved in anything that may come out criminally concerning this case,” he said.

Knox said they haven’t been able to find the girl’s father yet.

“We have not had contact with the individual who’s responsible for this,” he said.

According to police, a man approached a bus stop on East Nevada near Van Dyke around 3 p.m. Monday with the little girl. Witnesses told police the man then walked away, and left the child.

A concerned citizen took the girl to Perfecting Church before calling police.

The case will be turned over to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
