LIVINGSTON PARISH (WVUE) -

There was a happy July 4th reunion after a 3-year-old boy and his grandfather were reporting missing and were the subject of a Level II Endangered/Missing Child Advisory issued around 3 a.m. Monday.

Roshei Selmon, 3, and his grandfather, Roland Williams, 45, were found safe and unharmed in Livingston Parish.

Shortly after 6 a.m, a state trooper from State Police Troop A in Baton Rouge spotted the vehicle at a convenience store on Satsuma Road near Interstate 12.

The vehicle was unoccupied, so the trooper entered the building to search for the child and his grandfather.

During a search of the building, the trooper located both Selmon and Williams in the restroom area of the store.

While awaiting confirmation of the identity of Selmon and Williams,’ the trooper provided them both with food and water.

The alert was issued because Williams suffers from a medical condition which impairs his judgment.

The New Orleans Police Department and the family of Selmon and Williams were contacted about the recovery. An EMS crew arrived at the scene as a precaution. They examined both Selmon and Williams and determined both were in good health. The pair was returned to family members and returned home.
