A toddler found alone on the street on Auckland's North Shore this morning has been reunited with his parents.
The boy, aged about 3 or 4, was found by a member on the public on Lake Rd in Takapuna about 4am.
He spoke an unknown language, which made communication difficult, and was wearing jeans and a blue sweatshirt and socks but no shoes, said police.
The boy was initially kept at North Shore Policing Centre and was then taken to Child, Youth and Family in Takapuna where his parents arrived about 10am, said a police spokesman.
