Newport News

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Newport News Police say a child was found in the 300 block of Boulder Drive in Newport News Thursday evening.

The 3-year-old girl was located by her guardians by 7:30 p.m., Police spokesman MPO Brandon Maynard said.

They will not face any charges, Maynard told WAVY News 10.

The call reporting a person had found her on Boulder Drive came in at 5:04 p.m.

When police arrived on scene, the child was pointing to an area where she lived, police said.

At the time, she was being watched by a family member. That person was outside looking for the child when police arrived. Police also contacted the mother about the situation, who was at work at the time. She came home right away.

The doors to the house were locked, but the 3-year-old knew how to unlock the door. There were no injuries on the child, and there is no prior history of child neglect or malnourishment.
