Child Found in Greenville County
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office was contacted this morning at approximately 7:45 am concerning a 2 year old, black male, child that was found by a Greenville Transit Authority bus driver near the intersection of White Horse Road and Lily Street. The bus driver, who had stopped the bus near the intersection, saw the child walking on the sidewalk. The driver took the child onto the bus and attempted to look for his parents without success. The driver then drove the child to the Greenville Transit Authority Office and contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies began searching for the parents in the area where he was found and located the child’s parents at Emerald Commons Apartments on White Horse Road. The mother of the child had been asleep with the child in a downstairs room when the child apparently awoke and was able to walk out of the apartments. Sheriff’s Office Investigators have reunited the child with his mother and the investigation is on-going. I will send out additional details and the incident report when they become available.
