A young boy has been reunited with his family by Alton Police after he was found wandering the streets alone early this morning. Police say the boy, who they described as a special needs child, is about nine years old and was found wearing only a t-shirt and sweat pants on West Wind near Brown Street around 6:45 a.m. He was transported to the Donald Sandidge Alton Law Enforcement Center and was reunited with his mother a short time later. No charges are expected to be filed.
