Police locate mother of child found barefoot in Taunton

Posted: Updated:

A social media blitz by concerned Mass. residents helped Taunton Police locate the mother of a young girl found barefoot and in pajamas.

Taunton Police took to Facebook on Saturday morning after finding a girl they believe to be between three and five years old in the area of Cedar and Grant streets.

Police asked Facebook users if they recognized the girl and said they were concerned that there may be a medical issue at the child's home.

Facebook users quickly began sharing the image of the child and soon people began identifying the child's mother. Almost one hour after their original post, Taunton Police posted on their Facebook wall again to thank the community for their help.
