Police locate parents of toddler found alone in Pembroke Pines

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – Pembroke Pines police confirmed that they have found the parents of a young boy who was discovered alone Tuesday morning.

Police said the 2-year-old boy named Logan was found wandering alone in the Pembroke Shores gated community in the area of Southwest 164th Terrace and First Court.

Neighbors found the boy and called police.

Authorities said the boy actually lives just a few houses down from where he was found.

They said the boy’s family was home at the time but thought that he was sleeping, not realizing that he had unlocked the front door by himself and went outside.

“I’m happy,” his mother told Local 10 News. “I’m happy that something bad didn’t happen to him.”

The boy’s grandmother said she thinks Logan may have gone outside to look for her since she often takes him out front to walk around the neighborhood.

She said she was in the backyard gardening when he left the home.
