SALT LAKE CITY — Authorities are trying to locate the family of a 2-year-old child who was found wandering alone Sunday morning.

Lt. Moreno of the Salt Lake City Police Department said the child was found at an apartment complex at 1475 West Pacific Ave. He said the boy was wandering around in the heat without shoes on.

Moreno said no one has come forward about a missing child, and the child is too young to answer questions about where he lives or who takes care of him. The child has been turned over to the Division of Child and Family Services.
