GEORGE TOWN : An Indonesian labourer turned up at the police station to claim his young son who was found wandering alone this morning.
Northeast district police chief Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the boy’s father and his babysitter, also an Indonesian, both came to claim the child.
“They came at 4.30pm to claim him and has taken him home,” he said.
The boy, believed to be four years old, was found by a passer-by trying to cross the busy main road of Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah here at 11.20am.
The good Samaritan could not find his parents or guardians in the vicinity and took the boy to the Sungai Nibong police station.
Mior had said the boy could not talk coherently so they were unable to identify the child’s identity or his parents.
The police had released the boy’s photo seeking public’s help to trace his family.-malaymailonline
