A young Sydney boy who was found wandering Sydney’s streets at night in his pyjamas has been identified and reunited with his family.
The boy, believed to be aged between nine and 11, was discovered wandering alone in Wicks Lane in Kogarah at 12.40am on Saturday morning.
Police released an image of the child in an appeal to the public, and just after 8am the boy’s mother was located.
Police from St George Police Area Command commenced a search of the area with the child in the early hours of Saturday morning, but were unable to locate his parents or carers.
The boy was wearing long grey pyjamas with ‘Marvel’ superhero characters on them and wasn’t wearing shoes when he was discovered.
He suffers a medical condition and was not able to identify himself to officers or provide any clues about his identity or home address.
Police have thanked the media and the community for their assistance.
