A boy was found sleeping in a Lexington park Monday morning, according to police.

The 12-year-old boy was found when a woman and her friend were walking their dogs through Pleasant Ridge Park.

"He said he'd slept in the slide all night," said Victoria Damron, who also said she helped the boy until police arrived.

Cops said the boy told them he'd been kicked out of his home Sunday.

They said they contacted the mother, who told them a different story--that the child was known for running away from home, and she didn't know he was gone.

Police said no one had called in a missing child the night before.

They said the boy was given back to his mother, and the case handed to Social Services.

Officers said no charges are expected to be filed.
