Conway P.D.: Social Media Helped To Locate Wandering Boy's Mother

- LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Conway police say social media helped reunite a 3-year-old with his mother.

Investigators say the boy was found wandering near Favre Lane and Greenwood Monday morning.

Police say it appears the boy was spending time with his aunt and uncle, when he slipped out of the home while they were sleeping.

Detectives say once they put the boy's picture on social media sites, they got a very quick response.

"For people who pay attention to social media, this is proof thy it works," said police spokeswoman Latresha Woodruff.

The case has now been turned over to the child abuse hotline for further investigation to determine whether any charges will be filed.
