A THREE-YEAR-OLD boy wearing his pyjamas walked through Detroit to a gas station all by himself in the middle of the night.
Police were called to the Citgo gas station at about 4.30am after the little boy wandered into the store and asked for sweets.
The man working at the gas station on McNichols near Conner Street gave him some treats and alerted the police in the early hours of January 5.
They talked to the tot before driving him around the nearby area to see if any places looked familiar, as they tried to get him home.
His mum had discovered he was missing and frantically ran to the gas station just before 6am, before noticing police cars and finding him there.
Detroit Police said the boy's mum said she had been in her car talking to a friend outside their apartment before noticing her son was missing.
