CLEARWATER BEACH (AP) - The parents of a 4-year-old boy found alone near a Clearwater Beach resort will not be charged.
The child's uncle in Tampa contacted Clearwater police Monday morning after seeing a news report about the child. He provided the parents' name and provided a room number of the Hilton hotel where they were staying on Clearwater Beach.
A newspaper carrier found the child alone near the Mandalay Beach Club about 4:40 a.m. Monday.
Clearwater police interviewed the parents but decided not to press charges. The family visiting from Chicago has been reunited.
The child was not harmed.
