HURRICANE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- UPDATE 8/13/19 @ 5:02 p.m.
Hurricane Police and Child Protective Services are investigating why a 2-year-old boy was roaming around a car wash alone around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Facebook post used by Hurricane Police to help find the family of a two-year-old boy that was roaming alone around a car wash Tuesday morning.

A good Samaritan found the child along Teays Valley Road and called police, Lt. T.J. Dillon said. Officers picked up the toddler and brought him back to the station.

It took a few hours and the help of the community through a Facebook post to locate the boy's guardians.

"I was rather shocked," Hurricane resident Lisa Hammicks said. "A little 2-year-old walking out by itself, there should be more supervision over their children. Not letting them walk out away from them and everything."

The guardians were questioned by police as part of an ongoing investigation. No charges have been filed at this time, Dillon said.
