"Authorities in Western Australia are struggling to locate the family of a young boy found on a Perth street more than 24 hours ago.

The boy, believed to be about three years old, was found on Belgravia Street in the Perth suburb of Belmont at midday on Friday."


Update - he has been identified, thread can be removed. Thanks.

How odd that no one has contacted police to report him missing. As PP said, I hope they're okay.

That's so strange and sad. Surely even if the carers have struck disaster, someone else - neighbours, friends, relatives - must know this little boy.

How strange...why would no one be looking for him? Surely someone knows who he is?

I've just shared this on FB as I live in the area. Must be the street for it though, about 6 weeks ago a friend and I found an elderly lady in the early morning who had no idea who she was or whe she lived in the same street.

Any chance she was in charge of childcare for a 3yo grand/great-grandson?  ddown.gif

No, wrong racial background, and we did eventually reunite this lady with a friend who by a stroke of luck saw us with her. The police didn't do much TBH, they couldn't send a car (it was Boxing Day) as they were too busy! They did keep in touch with us, and were going to send an ambulance when her friend saw us. Apparently she was suffering dementia. We were with this poor lady for nearly 2 hours with no help. She had a wad of cash she kept showing us and spoke no English. I dread to think what could have happened to her if we hadn't found her.
