SALT LAKE CITY — A missing 4-year-old boy was found Wednesday after walking away from his home, police said.

Salt Lake police Det. Cody Lougy said Walter Clingenpeel went missing around noon and was found around 1:45 p.m.

Officers responded quickly to the area of 2700 South and Filmore Street and began going door to door. One officer looked through the window of a house several doors to the south of Walter's home and saw him with a dog inside.

No one was home at the residence, but Walter had gone through a gate at the side of the house, where he found an open door.

Walter has been returned to his parents.
