MESA, AZ — The Mesa Police Department has safely reunited a young boy with his family after he was found wandering at Pioneer Park Saturday.

Authorities say the boy was found at the park near Mesa Drive and Main Street at around 3 p.m.

Police say a group of about 40 members were at the park for a memorial service when there was a miscommunication between the boy's mom and grandma about who was watching him.

They both left the park and neither took the child with them.

Officials say the boy's mom saw the department's Facebook posts and called police.

Police say there are no charges for anyone involved.
