CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati police say they found a 4-year-old boy alone wandering the streets in Winton Terrace early Tuesday.

Officers were notified the boy was seen alone on Winneste Avenue and attempting to open car doors about 3 a.m.

They found him dressed in a T-Shirt with “Older Brother” on the front and orange shorts with a blue stripe on the side.

Officers went door-to-door for two hours attempting to locate his parents and/or a caretaker.

The child was turned over to Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services about 5 a.m. when police were unable to find one.
