Calif toddler craving fries found in parking lot

Submitted By AP Wire Service

PLEASANTON, Calif. (AP), Apr 01 - A San Francisco Bay area toddler has been reunited with his mother after apparently stepping out for a bite to eat.

The 2-year-old from Pleasanton was found in the parking lot of a Walmart wearing only a white T-shirt and diaper around 3 a.m. Thursday.

Pleasanton police Sgt. Maria Munayer says he told investigators he wanted McDonald's french fries. There is a McDonald's inside the Walmart.

The boy appears to have awoken in the middle of the night, opened the front door of his apartment and headed out, crossing four lanes of a usually busy thoroughfare. Police say the knob on the front door is set low and automatically unlocks the deadbolt.

His mother called 911 when she awoke around 6 a.m. to report her child missing.

Police say there is no basis for any criminal charges against his mother.
