The wise men didn't actually find Jesus in Bethlehem they found him in his home in Nazareth

THE BIBLES ANSWER: Matthew chapter 2 tells us that the wise men went to Herod in Jerusalem and ask where the one was who was born King of the Jews. Herod ask his priests and scribes who told him that He was born in Bethlehem and sent the wise men there. After visiting with Jesus they were told to depart to their destination without going back to Herod. Then Joseph, Mary's husband was warned in a dream to take Jesus and Mary to Egypt because Herod was going to seek out Jesus and have Him killed. After a stay in Egypt and after Herod (the Great) was dead the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream telling him they could return to Nazareth.

In Matthew's Gospel, the wise men found baby Jesus in the family house (Matthew 2:11) in Bethlehem. Many people find this confusing because in Luke's Gospel, Nazareth in Galilee was where the family lived, whereas in Matthew, they lived in Bethlehem. Only after fleeing to Egypt and spending a number of years there did the travel to Galilee and settle in a city called Nazareth (Matthew 2:23).
