COLLEGE PARK, Ga. - College Park police are hoping to interview the man they say may have left a toddler alone behind dumpsters Thursday.
The 2-year-old was found near the Valero gas station on Old National Highway. The child had a plastic bag with him that contained diapers and a pair of shorts, authorities said.
The boy’s mother, 27-year-old Destiny Walker, went to the police department Thursday afternoon after she said she saw a photo of her son on the news.
Police said Walker told them she had left her son with her boyfriend, and that he then left the child with a babysitter when he went to work. They now want to talk to her boyfriend, who they said Exxon convenience store surveillance caught on camera at about 4:30 a.m.
At about 6 a.m., 911 operators handled three separate calls about a child found at the Valero gas station.
“I found a child behind a dumpster.. And I don't know what to do with him. He's standing right here with me,” one 911 caller said.
Early reports were a homeless man found the child and flagged down a 17-year-old for help.
Police said they have not been able to confirm that a homeless man found the child.
Police said they are trying to get in touch with a teen who called 911 to verify information in the case. They said the phone numbers she provided them no longer work.
The teen took the child to a Waffle House nearby where she fed him while waiting for police to arrive.
