MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Police in Mandan say a 4-year-old North Dakota boy was found wandering around a gas station parking lot alone and without wearing shoes.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1G2j3ly ) reports gas station employees told police they found the boy wearing pants and a T-shirt Friday morning. Police say the boy told an officer that his feet were “freezing.”

The child was unable to tell police who his parents are and where he lived.

About two hours later, a 28-year-old woman called 911 to report her child was missing. Police say she acknowledged that she had left the child home alone while she went to run an errand.

Police say she told officers that she didn’t think her son had been gone for that long.

It’s unclear whether the woman will face charges.
