Toddler found roaming city in middle of night
A toddler who walked out of her family’s Toronto home in the middle of the night has been reunited with her parents after spending a few hours watching cartoons at a police station. Police said the three-year-old girl got dressed, put on her rain boots, unlocked the door and walked to a nearby grocery store while her parents slept Monday morning. “Thankfully, this was a happy ending,” said Toronto police Const. Craig Brister. Police received a call from staff at a Sobeys grocery store in downtown Toronto around 2:30 a.m. Monday and spotted the child wandering around the parking lot, Brister said. He said they brought the girl to a nearby police station where she watched cartoons and ate a snack. Police then canvassed the neighbourhood looking for her caretakers, but didn’t find them, he said. Her parents woke up a few hours later and realized their daughter was missing and immediately reported her missing, Brister said.
