NEDERLAND, Colo. – Deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s have identified the parents of a 3-year-old girl after she was found wandering the streets near the Town of Nederland all alone Friday afternoon.

The girl reportedly wandered up to a house in the 1900 block of Cold Springs Road outside Nederland at around 1 p.m.

Deputies said she appeared to be in good health, adding they didn’t believe the girl experienced any trauma.

The girl wasn't communicating with officers, so authorities didn’t know a lot about who her parents were or how she ended up wandering the streets by herself.

Deputies said just after 4:15 p.m. that the child had been identified by members of the community and that they had made contact with her family.
