Mother of wandering toddler still not located

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Neighbors of a mother whose son wandered away from home Tuesday morning are surprised they haven't seen or heard from her for more than a day.

Police said she has not called them or claimed her son.

On Wednesday there were no signs of the mother or any relatives at the house where the 2-year-old boy lives.

The boy is still in the care of the Division of Family Services.  

Family friends said that before 11 a.m. Tuesday, the person who was watching the boy fell asleep. The boy unlocked the front door and ran out chasing the family dog for nearly half a block.

A group of construction workers stopped the boy from running into the street and called police.

Officers checked out locations where the mother may work Tuesday afternoon, but didn't have any luck finding her.
Neighbors told us this is very unlike her and that she loves her son very much.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of the boy's mother, please call police.
