GLADSTONE, MO (KCTV) -

A 3-year-old boy is safe after being found wandering the streets of Gladstone alone.

Police posted a photo of him Friday with the caption "do you recognize this young man?" But they weren't the first ones to find him.

Before that, a local auto store worker noticed him trotting down the street alone, then getting in a stranger's car. That's when he stepped in to make sure everything was OK. It wasn't long before the two became friends.

“He's a little sweetie. My last name is George so that was a coincidence … o we got him some McDonald’s and French fries and pretty much just canvased the neighborhood,” Bob George said.

The boy's aunt saw police's post on Facebook and got them in touch with his mom.

They're talking to her now to figure out what happened.
