PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police say relatives of a little boy found wandering in Frankford have come forward. But the little boy will not be spending the night at home.

The Special Victims Unit say the boy’s mother, grandmother and uncle came into the station Monday evening after an aunt saw a picture of four-year-old Mark on the news.

Police say preliminary reports indicate that the grandmother was watching the toddler in the morning. He woke up and went into her bedroom, and she told him to go back to bed. When the grandmother woke up later, the boy was gone. But police say the grandmother wasn’t worried, thinking his mother had picked him up.

It was around 9 a.m. when officers saw Mark walking on Bridge Street between Darrah and Lesher.

Officers took him to Special Victims and then he was turned over to the Department of Human Services.

The District Attorney’s office will review the case and determine if the little boy can return home.
