Child of about 3 found wandering alone in Compton near busy intersection

Los Angeles County authorities are asking for the public's help in locating the parents of a little girl found wandering alone in Compton.

The Sheriff's Department says the toddler, who appears to be about 3 years old, was found Saturday evening by a concerned citizen near Willowbrook Avenue and Alondra Boulevard.

Officials say the girl, possibly Latino or black, has a light complexion with dark hair and was wearing a pink T-shirt with a character from the movie “Minions” on it.

Her first name may be “Shanay” or “Janae” or something similar. She was being cared for Sunday at the sheriff's station in Compton.
