(Newser) – A 3-year-old boy abducted from his family home in San Bernardino nearly 2 weeks ago by two armed men was reunited with his mother today after police found him wandering a Mexican border town's streets, sheriff's officials said. The reunion took place in the California border city of Calexico, a day after detectives and FBI agents received a call from officials in the neighboring Mexican city of Mexicali.

A municipal police officer in Mexicali found Briant Rodriguez walking the streets by himself late Thursday. The officer took him to several houses seeking his family before leaving him in child protective custody. Briant's mother, Maria Rosalina Millan, and investigators boarded a plane to Calexico Friday night. Investigators were continuing to investigate why Briant was abducted and why his family was targeted.
