In efforts to locate her son, Arlene called the school, which confirmed that Colton had indeed boarded the bus, Sharebly reported.
A worried Arlene decided to drive around the Cypress Miramesa neighbourhood in search of the 6 year old.
“So we were just riding around, looking for him. I didn’t know where I was going. I just knew I would take the route to the school,” she said on KHOU 11.
Fortunately a stranger named Kim happened to notice Colton running frantically down West Road.
“I got out of my car and asked him what happened. He was so very brave and told me he was dropped off at the wrong stop and he didn’t know where he was. I noticed, he had a green sticker on his shirt. It didn’t have a phone number but it had his address. I put the address in my phone so I could find how to get to this house, come to find out, it was 5 miles away from where we were,” Kim wrote on her Facebook.
Colton's guardian Angel led him to his front door and rang their Ring doorbell, which triggered a notification for Arlene’s phone. She raced home where she was reunited with her son.
“There’s nothing that we can do to repay her. Thank God. I praise God,” Arlene told KHOU 11.
