PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Portland mother is upset that her 8-year-old special needs son was able to walk away from Woodlawn Elementary School.

Police found the third-grader Monday a mile-and-a-half away at a Wendy’s restaurant where he went because he wanted a cup of water with ice.

Tamberlee Tarver told KOIN (https://bit.ly/1xtiKY4) the school called her to say her son was missing and she had to tell them to call police. Police said they had reports of a child walking down Interstate 5.

Portland Public Schools spokeswoman Christine Miles says it has safety protocols in place and it’s investigating to see what happened at Woodlawn.
