He was found on Everettdale Avenue near Cedar Street in south Lansing.

After putting out an alert on social media, officers were able to eventually find one of the boy's parents.

The boy, who could not tell officers where he lived or his name, was wearing green and black Jurassic Park pajamas with "dinnertime" on the front, police said.

Officers believe the boy might be autistic.
