The child was abandoned on March 31st. The child is described as a black male, approximately five (5) years of age, with disabilities preventing him from providing the necessary information to make a positive identification and locate his family. He answers to the name “Prince”. “Prince” is safe and in the care of the CT Department of Children and Families.
