Toddler found wandering by Paramount Studios

LOS ANGELES A man parking his car found the 3-year-old boy near Melrose Avenue and Harvard Boulevard around 4:30 a.m. The man alerted police, who determined that the boy did not appear to have been outside very long.

Just as officers were about to begin knocking on doors around 5:15 a.m., a call came in from a woman looking for her missing 3-year-old. Police said it seemed that the boy kept trying to get outside and succeeded.

The child was turned over to his mother.
