Los Angeles police asked for the public's help Wednesday night to identify a deaf child that was found tonight by himself in Union Station, Los Angeles police said.

The child who was unattended was discovered around 7 p.m. at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles by LAPD's Transit Services Division officers, according to department officials.
