Tampa police find wandering deaf boy

September 7, 2007

 ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa police have found a young deaf boy who apparently wandered away from his group home in the middle of the night.

The boy was found in a busy street wearing only his boxer shorts and holding a box of cereal. Police say the boy could only communicate using a very basic sign language.

The group home reported the boy missing around 6 a.m., about four hours after police found him and started a door-to-door search for his family. The boy has been returned to his caregivers.
