His mother had last seen him in his bedroom around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. When she went into his room to close a window around 5 a.m. Thursday, he was gone and the front door was unlocked.

Police said the 5-year-old has a history of sleepwalking. He was wearing only a white T-Shirt and “Sponge Bob Square Pants” boxer shorts when he went missing.

A few hours later, Wiggins knocked on someone’s front door and the little boy was taken inside by a couple who later called police. He was reunited with his mother and checked out by a doctor.
