Halton Regional Police say they have found the father of a toddler who was found wandering alone in Milton on Sunday morning.

Police said the little girl, who is believed to be between 18 and 24 months old, was spotted in a live lane of traffic near Scott Drive and Derry Road at about 11:45 a.m. 

A concerned passerby called police.

Investigators announced in a news release that the girl's father had been found, not long after they initially asked the public for help in tracking down her parents.

"This matter is still under investigation," the news release reads.

Police said the girl was not harmed.
