Man Finds 2-Year-Old Girl Roaming the Streets in the Middle of the Night
A Memphis man said he found a 2-year-old girl roaming alone in the middle of the street at 3 a.m.
In a video posted to Facebook by Soloman Jones, the man who found the girl, he can be seen holding the toddler as she lies on his shoulder.
“Here comes a 2-year-old child walking up the street crying… I called the police ‘cause I don’t know who this child belong to,” Jones says to the camera.
Jones told InsideEdition.com that he and his friend were sitting on his porch when they spotted the girl.
“We see this little girl walking up the street at 3:30 a.m. and it’s cold outside. We knew something wasn’t right. She said, ‘I’m looking for my momma,'" Jones said.
He said he tried to get the girl to point out her house but she couldn’t, so he called police.
In another video posted by Jones, police are seen arriving to the scene and trying to figure out where the girl’s house is.
Jones said the girl was eventually reunited with her parents, who were unaware she had gotten out.
Jones said he didn’t mean to bash the parents in his video; he was just emotional about finding the girl.
“I see them [her parents] sometimes. They are pretty good people. Everybody makes mistakes. They aren’t neglectful. You don’t have to be a bad person to let your kids get out,” Jones said. “I just want folks to make sure they keep their doors tight. Anything could have happened if the wrong people would have found her.”
