Witnesses say little Anthony was saying  "Mom mom, come back, come back"  in between tears at around 4 o'clock this morning.  They were in the parking lot of Rally's fast food chain on Avalon and Florence.

Just over the white wall at Rally's is where the boy was found.  In the backyard of Lynn Boyd's residence.  

Lynn Boyd, says "He kept saying my head hurts, my neck hurt, there was dirt on his head and he kept grabbing me saying mommy."

Boyd's husband called 911 as other neighbors came out to comfort Anthony.  They also spoke to him in Spanish but he wasn't talking

Denise Santos lives next door and says "He kept throwing up I think he was nervous, he was really scared"

Anthony was taken to the hospital to get checked out and while police haven't confirmed the boy was thrown over the 6 foot wall, they are investigating exactly what happened.

Det. Michael Falvo "Through The Department of Social Services, he told a worker there his mom said goodbye to him and then just left on a bus we have to check that out."

Anthony's aunt and uncle have identified themselves but the Department of Children and Family Services will determine who will get custody.

Santos says "thank god that he fell into good hands with good people here, that we, who knows this could have been a totally different situation. "
