ALTON, Ill. -- Illinois state child-welfare officials are investigating the case of a 2-year-old boy who was found alone in an Alton park before being safely returned to his family.

The (Alton) Telegraph reports two daycare workers found the toddler in Amazing Spiderman pajamas and playing alone Tuesday in Hellrun Park.

Authorities using a police dog went door to door and about 45 minutes later found the boy’s father and grandmother sleeping in a duplex.

No charges have been filed.

The boy was examined at the scene. Officials say he wasn’t harmed.
