The child is a non-verbal 5-year-old with autism. Charges have been filed against the mother, police said. 

Previous Reporting: Colerain Police said a driver called 911 and reported a boy walking alone at the corner of Sheed Road and Gaines Road Thursday night. 

The caller, Josh Wanderski, described the situation as scary and said the child was soaking wet and waving down cars. 

“It’s a two-lane road, super dark, no lights, very windy, and it was also freezing. He was just on the side of the road. He was waving me down. Luckily I was close so that I could call the police,”  Wanderski told Enquirer Media Partner Fox 19.
