KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - A 4-year-old central Florida boy missing since mid-July has been found.
Kissimmee police say Tatum Contosta was found Friday morning in a Walgreens in Orlando. The Florida Department of Children and Families will take custody of the boy.
Police say the boy's mother, Jessica Contosta, left him with 45-year-old Silverio Irrizarry at Kissimmee motel on July 14 while she went to Orange County. The child was with Irrizarry Friday morning.
Police spokeswoman Stacie Miller says Irrizarry won't be charged since the child was left with him. But detectives are trying to find out where the pair has been for two weeks. Police say Irrizarry is a homeless heroin addict.
Jessica Contosta was arrested July 14 on charges of prostitution and failure to appear in court on a 2009 theft case.
