A 3-year-old boy, wearing only a diaper, was found wandering alone along a Brooklyn Park street early Thursday.

The city police department posted a Facebook status saying the child was found at 84th and West Broadway – right by North Hennepin Community College.

Officers got the call at about 7:40 a.m., Brooklyn Park Police Deputy Chief Mark Bruley told BringMeTheNews in an email, and found him on the side of the road. He goes by the name Mikey, Bruley said.

At an afternoon press conference, police said they believed they've found one of the boy's parents, according to tweets from the scene.
