LITTLETON, Colo. – Deputies say they have located the family of a young boy who was found walking barefoot and alone in Littleton early Tuesday.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office had asked for the public's help finding the boy's family after a driver spotted him walking east on W. Ken Caryl Avenue near South Kendall Boulevard at about 2:45 a.m.

The boy, who deputies said appears to be about 5 years old, told law enforcement his name was Manuel Gordo.

As of 11:15 a.m., deputies said Manuel's family had been located. It wasn't clear where they were located or why it took several hours for law enforcement to find them.

Deputies didn't provide any further details about the case, saying only that their investigation is ongoing.
