Parents located after special needs child found alone in street

Parents of a special needs child have been located after she was found walking alone Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the girl was found in the street in the 100 block of W. North Bend Road in Carthage.

The girl was unable to communicate with officers so they didn't know who she was or where she lived.

Police have not yet said how the girl ended up in the street alone or if she was reported missing by her parents.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
