Deputies in Canyon Country eventually tracked down the parents of a boy who was discovered riding a scooter all by himself on a heavily trafficked road.

In a tweet sent out by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at 1:23 p.m. Thursday, officials said the boy, described as white, approximately 3-4 years old with blonde hair, hazel eyes and wearing an orange long-sleeve shirt with jean shorts, was found riding a scooter, near Soledad Canyon Road and Lost Canyon Road. 

“A bystander saw the little boy on a red scooter, deputies were alerted and they didn’t see any adults nearby,” said Shirley Miller, a spokeswoman for the station. “Deputies went to different houses and different businesses, but they were unsuccessful in finding the kid’s parents.” 

At approximately 2:27 p.m., a tipster called into the station and a parent was located, Miller said.
