By The Spokesman-Review

A 2-year-old boy was found wandering alone in Sully’s Pub and Grill at 5785 N. Government Way in Coeur d’Alene this afternoon, launching a police search to find out his identity.

The boy told police his father’s name was Jesse Edwards, according to a Coeur d’Alene Police Department press release. After several hours, police were able to contact his father at the Hayden Wal-Mart. Edwards appeared to be under the influence and would not explain how he got separated from his son, police said.

Edwards has been arrested on a charge of child endangerment.
