Toddler Found Near Busy Road, Dad Arrested

PANAMA CITY BEACH - A Panama City Beach man is in the Bay County jail Friday after police say his child was found wandering close to a well traveled highway.

32-year-old Christopher Wright is facing child neglect charges.

Beach Police got a call a little after noon Friday from the management of the Club Apartments on Richard Jackson Blv. claiming they found the toddler wearing nothing but a very dirty diaper walking near the road.

They told police they kept the child in their offices for 45 minutes but no one came looking for him.

Police caught up with his father Christopher Wright at his apartment, which they described as unsanitary.
