At about two o'clock on a holiday Monday, Saginaw highway is still very busy.

"It's a really busy street if you see the traffic, it's more like a highway," Harpreet Singh, who lives nearby, said.

"I live right down the street," Nancy Isabell said. "This is the busiest intersection in my whole neighborhood."

So you can imagine what it was like at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. That's when Eaton County Sheriff's deputies found a little boy walking alone near the the intersection of Saginaw and Waverly.

"It's pretty risky with the amount of cars for a little child to be walking around," Singh said.

The sheriff's office declined to go on camera, they also would not release the family's name. People who live and work in the area said they saw the little boy wandering around in his diaper all alone.

Police say the child climbed out of a nearby house window while his mother was asleep. When they found him near the side of the road, he either could not or would not talk with them. It's unclear how sheriff's deputies got in touch with his parents, or how long he was wondering.

"I think it's irresponsible on the parents side," Singh said.

Residents, whether they have children of their own or not, could not believe this story.

"I have a grandson that's 2 years old," Isabell said. "I can't imagine him running loose like that."

It was a very scary situation, that ended in the best possible way. The boy was not injured.

Police did not respond to repeated requests for an interview. No word on if the little boy's parents will face any charges. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
