The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services is investigating the family of a 2-year-old who wandered into a supermarket on his own late at night.
Employees at the A&P in Hoboken found the toddler at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, The Jersey Journal reported. They called police who located the child's family at their home about a block away.
Police Sgt. Sam Williams said the toddler apparently wandered away while the rest of the family was asleep. He was returned to his family, but state child welfare authorities were notified. (UPI)
