Police in Wichita, Kansas are trying to determine the identity and whereabouts of a young boy who may be lost.
A young boy, about four or five years old, walked alone into a convenience store about 9-15-pm Saturday night. Employees asked him if he was lost and he would only say “Mom.”
Workers called the Wichita Children’s Home to help the child, but he had vanished by the time help arrived.
Surveillance cameras at the Quik Trip showed the boy walking out of the store around 9-30pm.
All Wichita Quik Trip locations partner with the Wichita Children's Home and serve as certified 'Safe Places' for children seeking help.
Wichita police would like to know if the child is actually missing, or if it is just a misunderstanding and he has now made it home safely.
The Wichita Police conducted a search and made about 14-hundred reverse 911 calls to nearby homes alerting citizens of a possible missing child. So far, they were unable to locate or identify the boy.
