A toddler found walking alone in Germantown, Maryland, will be reunited with his family, police said. 

Montgomery County police asked for help Thursday morning after the boy estimated to be 1 or 2 years old was found near Brandermill Road and Peridot Lane at about 10:30 a.m. 

Police and media outlets distributed a photo of the child more than an hour later. 

“Thanks to a neighbor seeing the news release, they were able to contact police, and the child is being reunited with his family,” police said in an update at 12:15 p.m. 

The toddler was able to get out of his family's home while relatives were asleep, police said.
