The Oakland County Sheriff's Office says the parents of a boy found wandering in Pontiac this morning have been located.

The 3-year-old boy was found walking on the sidewalk on Baldwin Road near Legrande Avenue.

After a preliminary investigation, the sheriff's office says there appears to have been a miscommunication between the parents and the babysitter who was supposed to at the home where the child was dropped off this morning. 

The child is still under the care of Child Protective Services until the investigation is complete.
