SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - College Park police
said a report that a homeless man found a toddler alone at a gas station is not true.
said surveillance video shows a 2-year-old boy with his mother's boyfriend near a Valero gas station on Old National Highway at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday.
said the boy's mother, Destiny Walker, told them her boyfriend was watching her son, and then left him with a babysitter. Investigators believe the babysitter called 911.
On Thursday, police said a woman called 911 to say she'd found Walker’s child. The caller said a homeless man found the child and flagged her down.
“As far as we know, the child was left there and had one pair of shorts in the bag and several diapers, so we assume he was left there on purpose,” College Park police Maj. E.W. Strozier said last week.
The boy is in the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services, police said.
So far, no charges have been filed.
