MARCO ISLAND — Toddler and his missing parents are quickly reunited by a Tigertail park ranger and the Marco Island Police Department at Tigertail Beach Saturday afternoon.
A toddler was seen at Tigertail Beach unattended in the early afternoon Saturday.
"A couple other beach-goers alerted the park ranger," said Marco Island Police Lt. Chris Morine.
Marco police officers responded to the call. While waiting with the Tigertail Beach Park Ranger and child, police also searched for the missing parents.
Morine said it was about 15 minutes when the parents were found.
They told the police that they went to their car to retrieve a couple items.
"We educated the German beach-goers that it's not an appropriate thing to do on Marco Island," Morine said.
