Detroit police say they found a boy wandering in Palmer Park Sunday night.

The boy says his name is Solomon and that he is 2 years old. However, police say it is possible that he is a little older.

When he was found, he was wearing green plaid shorts and black gym shoes. He wasn't wearing a shirt.

Police say relatives showed up at the precinct to pick up the boy, but they were turned away because the mother wasn't with them. Police have asked the relatives to have the mother come to get her child.

The Detroit Police Department will keep the child in their care pending further investigation.
