Child found wandering for an hour with no supervision

Manatee County, FL -- Early this morning, a neighbor noticed a small child in the road near her front yard and called the sheriff's office.

When authorities arrived, they found the 19-month-old child, but were unable to find the parents. 

They did an extensive serach of the neighborhood, but came up empty-handed. 

About an hour after finding the child, 25-year-old Justin Dufon of 5532 41st St. E. was located and arrested.

A Child Advocacy Center (CAC) detective and Child Protective Services are still investigating.
