On Monday evening, Toronto Police published a news release regarding a young boy who was seen walking unattended in the Danforth and Carlaw Avenue area on Sunday night. The boy was spotted by a street camera at around 9:40 PM and police are concerned for his safety.
Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying and locating the unattended boy. The boy is believed to be between the ages of 10 and 12. He was seen dressed in only a Nike t-shirt and shorts, without a jacket.
"Police are concerned for his safety, as he was not dressed for the weather and not with an adult," says the news release. Sunday night's temperature wasn't as terribly cold as it's been recently, but still being a winter night in early February, the boy was severely underdressed.
According to the news release, the boy is described as five feet tall "with a thin build". He was wearing "a black t-shirt with ‘Nike’ and the Nike symbol on the front, black or dark blue sports shorts with a white stripe, and white socks with grey bottoms" at the time.
Police have released two images of the boy from the CCTV footage along with their news release:
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5500. Or, you can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477). You can also leave a tip online at www.222tips.com.
