Care Taker Arrested After At Risk Boy Found Walking along K-Beach Rd.

Last night at roughly 5:20pm, the Alaska State Troopers received a 911 call reporting an autistic 10-year-old boy was found walking along the road near mile-13 of K-Beach Road. The boy was found only wearing a T-shirt.

An investigation revealed his care taker, 39-year-old David Holt of Kenai, had fallen asleep and the boy left the residence unsupervised.  Alcohol was involved.

Holt was arrested and was transported to Wildwood Pretrial where he was remanded for one count of Reckless Endangerment and was held for $500 bail.

The child was released to his parents uninjured.
