A little girl found wandering in Lodi has been reunited with her parents.

The girl was found walking alone Wednesday morning in the 400 block of North Church Street. Police went door to door in the neighborhood to find her parents.

Her picture was also posted on the department’s Facebook page. The girl was recognized by someone on Facebook who then contacted the parents.

The girl, about 3 years old, speaks Spanish but those who spoke with her were not been able to get her name.

“It looks like she dressed herself,” said police Lt. Sierra Brucia. “Her shoes are on the wrong feet.”

Brucia said that the girl had been left in the care of a 12-year-old sibling when she apparently decided to take off.
