Boys found alone, reunited with family

CHESTER, S.C. (WBTV) - Police in Chester say they have located a family member of two young boys who were found alone Monday afternoon.

The boys were found on Hinton Street, which runs between Columbia Street and Harris Street, in the City of Chester. The Chester Police Department put a message on Facebook asking for help.

Just after 2 p.m., police said they had located a family member and that the boys were doing well “because of this community.”
