Police in Tumwater, Wash., say the manager of the Tumwater Inn & Suites found a 3-year-old toddler wandering alone in his pajamas on the sidewalk.

Detective Jen Kolb says police were able to return the child to his parents about 2 1/2 hours later when they came to the police station Friday to report the child missing.

Kolb tells The Olympian ( http://is.gd/PS0TPS) that the parents are long-term guests of the inn and recently moved to the area from out of state.

Kolb says the boy somehow walked out of his parents’ room without anyone noticing.
