Woman Finds Toddler Wandering in Lynchburg

Lynchburg, VA - A Lynchburg father is charged with felony child neglect after police say his 3-year-old son was found wandering the streets Friday morning.

Paul Jason Thomas, 36, is being held on $7,500 bond at the Lynchburg Adult Detention Center.

A couple driving to work early Friday morning spotted Thomas' 3-year-old son, wearing only a diaper, at the corner of Pierce and 15th Streets.

Police determined the father lives on Pierce Street.

The child was released to his mother, who does not live with the father.
