RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Racine police are investigating after a young boy was found wandering outside in below-freezing temperatures.

Police Sgt. Adam Malacara tells The Journal Times of Racine  that a citizen found the boy outside around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and brought him to a police station. The boy is estimated to be around 1 to 2 years old.

The boy had a coat but was alone. Malacara says the boy's mother was located about 4 p.m. It was unclear if the boy was returned to his mother.

Police are still investigating to see if charges are appropriate.
