HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A toddler found wandering alone inside of a flea market was spotted and taken by the proper authorities. Now a couple claiming to be his parents has  come forward to claim the young child.

The young boy, believed to be about 18 months, was found wandering around wandering around Traders Village Flea Market in the 7900 block of North Eldridge Road around 5:30 p.m. Someone noticed him and picked him up.

One witness stated that the young boy almost got hit by a vehicle while walking alone outside. The toddler was taken to the main office of the market and a page went out for his parents or guardians. A considerable amount of time had passed. As of 10 p.m. Sunday, no one had claimed the child so the child was turned over to CPS. Fully dressed and appearing in good health, the toddler was visibly upset.

A couple claiming to be the toddler’s parents called CPS’ offices Monday evening. The man and woman will undergo an intense and detailed evaluation from CPS. While such is happening, the toddler is scheduled to be turned over to relatives. CPS will then make a decision as to whether to return the child to the man and woman claiming to be his parents.

Anyone who can supply additional information in the case is asked to call: 281-847-4172.
