Grandma granted custody of Florida boy, 3, found alone on NY porch
Boy found alone Sept. 16; missing parents may be linked to burned car
BUFFALO, N.Y. – A 3-year-old Central Florida boy found sleeping on a porch in Buffalo will go home with his grandmother while authorities try to determine whether the remains of two people found in a burned car are those of his missing parents.
A family court judge Friday granted custody to Zenaida Colon, who traveled from the Orlando area after recognizing her grandson in news reports.
The boy was found alone the morning of Sept. 16. His parents' destroyed rental car was discovered nearby the same day.
Colon's son, Miguel Anthony Valentin-Colon, his girlfriend, Nicole Merced Plaud, and a family friend have been missing since Sept. 15, which is when police say they arrived in Buffalo with the boy.
Surveillance video shows two unidentified adults walking with the child away from where the car was found.
