Border agents find crying 3-year-old boy alone in Texas cornfield

Border agents found a 3-year-old boy alone and crying in a cornfield in Texas early Tuesday morning, officials say.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the child had his name and phone numbers written on his shoes. Agents have been attempting to reach his family.

CBP says the boy is believed to have been with a larger group that ran when they encountered agents.

It is unclear how long the child was alone in the field.
