A Florida sheriff's office says a 3-year-old boy in need of medical treatment was found in Georgetown.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said the child, Joshua McAdams, was considered missing and endangered after his parents, Taylor Bland-Ball and Joshua McAdams, didn't bring the child to have a hospital procedure done last Monday.

Deputies say he needed medical attention, but he is safe.

Georgetown police confirmed to WKYT the child was found at a hotel in Georgetown with his family.

Georgetown and Scott County EMS saw the child at the hotel. Police say he will be going to a local hospital for more evaluation.

Georgetown police say that their main concern with the situation was the well-being of the child.

Police are working with the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services to resolve the situation with the family.

At this time, Georgetown police say the parents are not facing any charges in Scott County or in Kentucky; however, they could face charges in Florida, including child neglect.

UPDATE: The three-year-old boy has been found in Kentucky. He is in need of medical attention, but safe. Thank you to...
