A crying boy wearing pajamas and holding a blanket was reunited with his family about three hours after he was found standing alone early Tuesday on a Bell street.
The boy was found at about 3 a.m. in the 6700 block of Chanslor Avenue. A passer-by returning home from work notified authorities.
"I saw a little boy standing here crying," said the passer-by, who identified himself as Miguel. "I've never seen him."
Officers used loudspeakers to ask neighborhood residents whether they could identify the boy.
The child -- police said he is about 2 years old -- was taken to a police station. Family members, including the boy's mother, arrived at the police station at about 6 a.m.
The boy, mother and grandmother had just arrived from Mexico during the weekend. They were staying at an uncle's home
