Sydney, May 18 (ANI): A toddler, most probably of Indian origin, was found walking unsupervised in Western Sydney on Tuesday morning.
Two off duty ambulance officers spotted the kid who is aged around three, and was seemingly distressed when the officers found him wandering alone on the busy street.
The police are having a hard time tracing the boy's parents or guardian as he offered little clue as to where they could be, and the police are finding it difficult to communicate with the kid who has a limited vocabulary.
They have also reconnoitered the area's pre-schools but to no avail.
"We canvassed the nearby area, a number of pre-schools and local schools and shopkeepers and met with a negative response. We showed a photo to people in the local area but no one knows anything about him," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Penrith Police duty officer Inspector Cox as saying.
The boy, who has not told the police his name, is of Indian appearance with an olive complexion, 80- to 90-centimetres tall and thin with short brown hair and brown eyes.
He was wearing a brown jacket with grey lining, a red jumper featuring a picture of a "hungry dinosaur", light grey tracksuit pants, grey socks and brown sandals, the paper reports.
The police have issued a notice with the helpline number of 'Crime Stoppers', for anyone who might provide information on the little boy. (ANI)
