Lost Melbourne Boy Found Wandering The Streets Naked

A nine-year-old boy who was found wandering the streets of Melbourne naked and alone in the middle of the night has been reunited with his parents.

The young boy was noticeably distressed and disoriented when he knocked on the door of a house in Hibberd Street, Highett, in Melbourne's south-east at approximately 2:45am on Thursday morning.

The residents of the home immediately called emergency services, who took the boy to hospital.

Police said the boy, with shoulder length blonde hair and blue eyes, was "not verbal" and refused to communicate with emergency services.

A photo was released of the nine-year-old at around 9.45am on Thursday to help identify him. 

In the photo, the boy appears to be deeply distressed, with a red nose and cheeks.

After a public appeal for help, the boy's parents came forward at around 10:30am. 

More to come.
