BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A Bed-Stuy family is shaken up and upset after they say their 4-year-old son left school unnoticed and walked home with no coat on.

The Talley-Jasper family says 4-year-old Symeir Talley-Jasper, who's in pre-K at William Floyd P.S. 59, asked his teacher if he could go to the bathroom at around 10 a.m. His teacher let him go alone and Symeir was unable to find his classroom when he finished. His parents say he then walked outside unnoticed and left without his coat.

Symeir walked to his father Rondell's apartment, who found him standing on the doorstep. His parents took him to the hospital, where he was found to be OK. His mother Quantasia Jasper says she's relieved he wasn't kidnapped or hit by a car, but wants to know how he was able to leave his school without anyone noticing.

The Department of Education says the incident has been referred to the Special Commissioner of Investigations.
