IT WAS not too long ago that this toddler could walk.
But the two-year-old boy triggered a cross-border alert on Monday after he boarded a bus alone and travelled 38km from Wales to England.
None of the other passengers noticed, reported Sky News.
It was only when the bus arrived at its destination in Shrewsbury after 50 minutes that the bus driver noticed the boy was unaccompanied.
"Everyone thought the child belonged to someone else and kept quiet," Nick Culliford, spokesman of Tanat Valley Motors, which operates the bus service, told the Daily Mail.
"The driver was not aware of the child's presence until the Shrewsbury stop," Culliford told the Star. "As the last person left the coach he pointed out that the child was being left behind only to discover that the little boy was unaccompanied."
Managing director Michael Morris told Sky News when the driver asked the last passengers getting off about the child each responded: "He's not mine".
"The little boy was not crying or upset or anything. He seemed to be enjoying his journey into Shewsbury," he said.
Two people were later arrested on suspicion of child neglect and have been released on bail.
Inspector Jonathan Tatton of Dyfed-Powys Police said: "Fortunately the child didn't come to any harm, and a thorough investigation is now under way to establish how this occurred."
He added: "Following the report two persons have been arrested and remain on police bail pending further enquires."
