The toddler was spotted by a concerned member of the public in Allerton, Liverpool, who called the police. Officers knocked doors in the area to establish the boy’s identity and, a short time later, were able to reunite the tot with his father.

The toddler had managed to unlock the family’s front door while his mother slept, it is believed.

The father of two wrote on a local blog: “Thank you so much for this message.

“I took my dog for a walk whilst my wife and two sons had a lunchtime snooze upstairs.

“We have child locks on our front door but we can not lock them from outside of the house.

“After my walk I assumed everyone was upstairs asleep.

“Our sons have found a way to unlock the front door.

“Our two-year-old son has let himself out for a tour.

“Thank you for this message, and the kind people of Ambleside for looking after (my son) who was understandably upset.”

The dad was grateful for the “excellent” officers at Merseyside Police and the residents in his community, repots Liverpool Echo.

An initial message on the blog read: “Police are knocking door to door to try and find the parents.

“Could everybody please check door cameras etc to see if he walked past. If you know anything relevant please call 999.”

Others users were relieved to read the boy had been reunited with his family.

One person said: “Thank God he’s ok and with his family.”

Another added: “You’ll laugh about this when he’s older. Clever boy.”
