Meet Tyre. He was found this morning wandering the streets of South LA. Around 8:15 a.m., officers were called to 91st Street and Stanford Avenue in the Green Meadows neighborhood regarding a found child. When officers spoke to him, he was only able to give his first name and did not know where he lived. He's about 4 years old and is wearing a sweet blue Spiderman shirt, green pants and black shoes. He was also carrying a bag of clothes. We really hope he wasn't abandoned. Officers drove around the surrounding area with Tyre in an attempt to locate the child’s family, but no such luck. Anyone with information that could assist detectives with this case is asked to call Detective Anna Rivera at (213) 972-7853 or (213)972-7813. Calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247). UPDATE: At 5:21 p.m., the LAPD announced that "Tyre has been reunited with his mother. The case is being handled by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Service (DCFS)."
