A young boy and his parents have been found after the boy was seen Sunday wandering near an exit of Interstate 95 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
The boy was spotted by a woman taking an Uber home at about 6:30 a.m., police said. Upon further investigation, police found the child’s parent and charged the woman with filing a false police report.
Police identified the woman as Daniela Peraza Lemus, age 22 from Central Avenue in Central Falls. Peraza Lemus will be held pending arraignment by a bail commissioner Monday.
The child's age is unknown. He was put into the custody of the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth, and Families after being taken to Hasbro Children's Hospital to be evaluated as a precaution.
Pawtucket detectives are investigating what happened, and anyone with information about it is being asked to call police at 401-726-3911 or email Det. Ethan Barrett at email@example.com.
