Nude child on Loudon Road returned to family
A nude 8-year-old child found early yesterday morning on Loudon Road has been safely returned to his family, the Concord police said.
Lt. Timothy O’Malley said a state trooper found the child standing on the corner at the intersection of East Side Drive about 6:30 a.m. City officers responded, located his mother in a nearby apartment and determined he had left the residence without her knowledge.
The child is developmentally challenged, O’Malley said, and this isn’t the first time such an incident has occurred. He said the mother was concerned and working to find ways to prevent him from voluntarily leaving in the future.
