Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark
(CBS/AP) VANCOUVER, Wash. - A 4-year-old boy dressed in Spider-Man pajamas had his own late-night Spidey adventure in Vancouver, Wash.

He was spotted on the street at 3 a.m. Sunday with a blanket and flashlight.

Officers were unable to find the boy's home, so they took him to a precinct station. They gave him hot chocolate and oranges and let him watch cartoons until his mother called at about 7 a.m. to report him missing.

The boy had been staying with his grandmother and awoke after a nightmare and went looking for his mother.

Now "Spider-Man" is back safe and sound.
