PORTLAND, Maine — Police in Freeport say a young boy who was found walking along Interstate 295 in a bathrobe, windpants and sneakers has been reunited with a parent.
Police did not release the boy’s name and age but said he was from another community in Maine. Officers were continuing to investigate how he came to be walking along the highway Monday.
The Portland Press Herald said officers quoted the boy as saying that his name was Nick and he was 13 and in seventh grade. He said he couldn’t remember his last name or the name of his school, but that he was up from Boston.
