SHELBY, Ohio — A toddler’s mother has been located after her son was found wandering with a dog following behind.

According to Shelby Police Department, the 2-year-old boy was found wearing only a diaper Saturday afternoon in the Mansfield and Jefferson avenues area. Police said a small dog was following him.

Police put out an alert on Facebook asking for help finding the child’s parents. They had him for about two hours before locating his 17-year-old mother.

Both the mother and the boy were taken by Children’s Services.

It’s not clear if the mother will face any charges.
