Running car with baby in child seat is driven off, recovered

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia police say someone hopped into a running car with a 1-year-old in a child seat in the back and drove off. Police said Thursday that the mother had just put her son in the car when she had to run back to the house to get something she had forgotten. The car with the unharmed child was found a few blocks away shortly afterward. Police are searching for a suspect and are investigating it as a kidnapping. Chief Inspector Scott Small says police believe someone saw an opportunity to steal a car and didn’t realize the child was in the back.
