Missing Houston toddler found in New Mexico
HOUSTON - The Associated Press reports --
Houston police say they have found a missing 2-year-old boy in New Mexico.
The boy was found with his mother's friend and that woman's boyfriend, a registered sex offender. Police say the child, who's name is not released, had no obvious signs of injury.
Houston Homicide Sergeant Richard Rodriguez says police got lucky because the couple were halfway to California with the child when they were caught early Saturday sleeping in a parked car in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Rodriguez told the Houston Chronicle that the mother's friend kept the child overnight Thursday. The woman told the mother to meet her in two different places Friday to pick up the child but the woman never showed up. The mother called Houston police Friday evening.
