Police in Vancouver are looking for the parents of a little girl who was found wandering the streets alone last night. The girl was spotted by a couple as she walked along East Pender Street in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. When the girl began to walk onto the road, the couple stepped in and called authorities. Vancouver police Const. Jana McGuinness says the girl “seems to speak some English, but she has trouble forming sentences, so even her name is still a mystery.” She spent last night in the care of social workers, while police searched for her family. The girl, who officers think is around three years old, is Asian and 2.5 feet tall. She was found wearing a brown and pink flowered jacket and holding a blond doll.
