2 toddlers found wandering alone in South Shore reunited with family


CHICAGO — Two toddlers who were found wandering alone in the city’s South Shore neighborhood were reunited with their family.

The children were found on the 7200 block of Jeffrey Boulevard around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. A man driving southbound on the street saw a 3-year-old girl with her coat and boots on. The 2-year-old boy only had on a shirt and jogging pants, but no coat.

The children were transported to Comer Children’s Hospital. Police said they are grateful a Good Samaritan found them.

Police combed the neighboring blocks where the children were found, looking for any indication of where the children could live but did not locate an address. Around 6 a.m., three adults were seen leaving with the children from the hospital. They did not want to speak on camera.

Later on Wednesday, police confirmed that the children were reunited with their family.

No charges have been filed.

The Department of Children and Family Services was contacted.
