MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man found a 2-year-old on his doorstep Thursday morning. He quickly took the child to the fire station on Overton Crossing. 

It is unclear how the child got from his home to his neighbor’s doorstep.

“It’s startling and frightening,” neighbor Michael Brown said.

Firefighters said the child's father was relieved when he was reunited with his son at the fire station.

“I’m so glad. It takes a whole village,” neighbor Lynnette Brown said.

Firefighters said the toddler appeared to be doing well.

The entire scene left neighbors angry with a lot of unanswered questions.

Police and the Department of Children’s Services are now investigating the case. It is unclear whether the child’s parents will face any charges.
