VOLUSIA COUNTY, Florida (WESH) -- A 2-year-old Florida boy was found barefoot and only wearing a T-shirt and shorts on the back porch of a Volusia County home early Tuesday morning.

According to investigators, deputies were called to the home when the resident found the child alone.

"He was hollering. That's why I heard him and went out," said the man who found the child, Tom Fordham.

Fordham said he woke up just after 1 a.m. to the sounds of a child on his screened-in porch.

He spotted the woman and child.

The boy was wearing nothing but a T-shirt and soiled, wet shorts.

Fordham called 911.
