The Raleigh Police Department in Wake County, North Carolina are conducting a search for the parents of a kindergartner from Durant Road Elementary School who was not picked up at the bus stop after school let out at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23.
Police officers took the child into custody when by 7:30 p.m. there was still no one who came forward to take the young boy home. Wake County Public School System spokeswoman Lisa Luten said it is not allowed for a school bus driver to leave children unattended if their parents do not pick them up at the bus stop. Police authorities said that because of the incident, they are considering asking Child Protective Services to look into the case.
