Mother of child found running down Gratiot located

Mount Clemens — The Macomb County sheriff’s office says a 5-year-old boy was spotted running down a Mount Clemens roadway in the middle of the night.

Deputies were sent to the area at 2 a.m. Saturday. According to a witness, the child was running in the center lane of Gratiot Avenue near a bus stop.

The sheriff’s office initially didn’t know who the boy was, since it says he was unable to speak with deputies.

But later Saturday morning, Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said a tip led deputies to the mother of the child, who lives in Clinton Township.
