Today at approximately 8:45 a.m., Long Beach police were dispatched to Atlantic Avenue and 60th Street after a passer-by saw two small children that were alone and called police.
The children, both African-American boys, are approximately one and two years of age, and appear to be in good health. The older child was found wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sandals, and the younger child was wearing a t-shirt and diaper.
Witnesses in the immediate area were interviewed but no one was seen with the children or dropping them off. The area was searched for any possible video but none was found. A two-block area was also canvassed, however, no one recognizing the children was located.
All law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County, as well as the five surrounding counties have been notified, and area hospitals have been alerted. The children have been turned over to the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.
Anyone who recognizes the children or has any information regarding their identity or the identity of their parents is urged to call Long Beach Police Communications at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if in the City of Long Beach.
