Baby Found Safe after Being Inside Stolen Car

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Police in Indianapolis say a baby is safe after the car it was inside was stolen while the child's mother was inside a convenience store paying for gasoline.

Police tell Indianapolis television stations that the baby was found a short distance away after the car was driven away from the store on the city's northwest side about 2:30 a.m. Friday.

Store clerk Bassa Gbeleou says the woman saw the car start to leave and ran outside screaming that a baby was inside the car. He says no other vehicles were at the station then and they didn't see anyone approach the car.

Police didn't immediately release more information about how the child was found. Officers were searching for the woman's car.
