An Oklahoma mother took to social media to share a “cautionary tale” of her 5-year-old son being let off at the wrong bus stop and wandering around the neighborhood.

Little Boy Wants To Go Home

A heartbreaking video of a 5-year-old boy asking for help on a Ring doorbell after allegedly getting dropped off in the wrong neighborhood is going viral after his mother shared what she said had happened on TikTok.

In the video, which began with footage from a Ring camera, the boy looked distressed as he opened and closed a storm door to a home and asked, “Would you help me find my mommy?”

He appeared tearful as he spoke, while another voice was heard responding over the Ring camera.

“My literal worst nightmare happened yesterday,” the boy’s mom, Kelly Mulholland, said in a TikTok video posted on Tuesday alongside the clip, which, had over 5 million views.

“The school bus driver did not check the tags on their backpack versus the stop they got off on and did not even notice that they got off,” Kelly said. “So, when I went to pick them up, they weren’t there.”

She asked the driver where the kindergarteners were dropped off, and when the driver didn’t recall, she said in the video, another child on the bus told her they’d gotten off at the previous stop.

While calling her boyfriend to inform him of the situation, a car driving past pulled over to ask if she was looking for two children.

Eventually, a neighbor drove up to Mulholland and asked if she was searching for two kids. Mulholland said in the video that the neighbor’s Ring doorbell responded to the children knocking on his door.

Mulholland and a group of neighbors began knocking on doors around the area, she said in the video, and eventually found the children a few houses down from where the Ring doorbell picked them up.

“I am so incredibly proud of these kids,” she said in the video. “They would alternate ringing doorbells. One would go up and one would stay on the sidewalk to keep watch.”

“I’m not sharing this to scare anybody, but I think this is a cautionary tale,” Mulholland said. “You need to teach your kids what to do if it happens.”

The Edmond school district’s policy is for bus drivers to only drop off students when a parent is present, and young students either have a wristband or a tag on their backpack identifying their bus.
