Good Samaritan helps boy reunite with his mom, after school bus drops him off at wrong address

 Geraldine Sells enjoyed a quiet summer evening on her porch Wednesday, but the day before, things were not as peaceful.

Her son went into her apartment at Plymouth Village to tell her she had "a problem" on her porch.

That problem was four-year-old Javion Lofton, a pre-K student from Homer Drive Elementary in Beaumont.

A teacher had put Lofton on the wrong bus, and he got dropped off at Plymouth Village, three miles from his own apartment.

Sells says she found contact information in his backpack, and was able to call his mother, Tequila Morris.

Morris had been frantically looking for him, and Sells says Morris was hysterical on the phone until she heard her son's voice telling her he was fine.

A bus took Lofton home.  Sells says he was calm the entire time he was with her.

Morris tells 12News she's looking for a lawyer to take legal action against the Beaumont Independent School District.

In a statement to 12News, BISD said, "The safety and security of all students is important to BISD.  Homer Drive Elementary and district leaders have met with the parent to answer questions and are committed to ensuring this situation is averted in the future."
