SURPRISE, Ariz. -- A 2-year-old boy was found wandering near an apartment complex in Surprise Sunday morning.

A person driving by the complex near Bell Road and Avenue of the Arts around 8 a.m. saw the child unattended and called Surprise police, according to spokesman Lt. John Bacon.

Police knocked on doors of nearby residences for a few hours, trying to find the boy's parents. A parent and sibling of the boy saw him with police and claimed him, Bacon said.

The parents told police they were not sure how the boy got out of the apartment.

It is not clear for how long the boy was unsupervised.

The child was wearing only a diaper and T-shirt, Bacon said.
