(NBC) Boynton Beach Fire Rescue Lt. Doug Brant  was on his way to work just before 6 a.m. Tuesday when he spotted a little boy in the middle of the road at Congress Avenue and Boynton Beach Boulevard.

Brant says he was coming from a gym when he made the surprising discovery. He says he was in the right place at the right time.

"I've seen some crazy stuff in this department, but I've never seen a baby in the middle of the street at six in the morning." He added, "I pulled my truck up to block it off in case something came and hit and then I got out, grabbed the baby, and sat there for a minute and it was unreal... I was like 'now what do I do?' "

Police and fire rescue were contacted.

Officers knocked on doors in the neighboring  communities in an effort to locate the boy's parents, but were initially unable to find  them.

Dispatch also sent out a reverse 911 call to homes in that area.

Shortly after the boy's photo was released to news outlets, someone remembered him wandering in the Boynton Landings community previously and called police.

Officers responded to an apartment in Boynton Landings and identified the boy's mother and her boyfriend.
