The boy is only three years old. He was seen running after a car that was speeding away. The cemetery is in Hinckley and he was left there on Wednesday, December 23. The boy was wearing wet clothing and was not wearing shoes according to police.
A woman witnessed this happening and immediately called 911. The police came and got the child. The child is being referred to as Little Tony and his identity is being concealed due to his age. He was able to help officers identify his parents. Currently, neither parent has been charged with a crime.
“While the investigation is still ongoing with a lot of questions still unanswered I want to assure everyone that Tony is doing very well in the loving home of a foster family here in Medina County,” Hinckley Police Chief David Centner stated in a Facebook post.
“His Dad has been very cooperative with us and Children Services in the investigation,” Centner said.
The police chief thanked the diligence of the community for helping out. They called about Tony and helped authorities find his parents. The boy is now home and was able to celebrate Christmas with his dog. The community brought a lot of gifts for the boy.
“From all of us at HPD we want to thank everyone for your kindness, thoughts, prayers, and overwhelming love,” Centner said.
