KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Police in Kansas City, Kan., say a 2-year-old boy has been taken into protective custody after he was found wandering without clothing in a wooded area.

Police said in a release Saturday they were called at about 1 a.m. Saturday about a child needing care. A passerby noticed the child walking in the wooded area with no clothing and took him to a fire station.

Police responded to the station and took the child to the Wyandotte County Juvenile Intake and Assessment Center. Police say they also received a call much later Saturday morning from someone reporting the child missing.

The child remains in protective custody while the incident is investigated. Police say he's in good condition.
