Sleepwalking Kid Held in Custody

MIAMI (AP) - Miami police are asking the Department of Children and Family Services to investigate after a 2-year-old boy was found sleepwalking in the streets.

Police say Tavaris Mack was sleeping with several other children at the home of his paternal uncle in the Liberty City neighborhood Friday. Authorities say the boy apparently got up in the middle of the night and walked out of the apartment. He then wandered nearly a block before a pedestrian called police around 4 a.m.

Family members say they awoke to discover the boy missing, and desperately began to search. The Miami Police Department has not filed any criminal charges in the case. DCF is investigating the incident and will determine if the child can return home.

Source: The Miami Herald,
I have sleepwalked myself and I assure you it is not a crime, please allow this child to come home to his parents, they committed no abuse.

In taking this child away from his parents you might be doing more harm than good, please consider giving this family another chance to remain together.
