The 10-month-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert on Monday afternoon was found safe in an abandoned car in Pompano Beach Monday night, according to Miami Herald news partner CBS4.
The child was reported missing after someone stole her mother’s car from outside a Fort Lauderdale coin laundry with her daughter inside, authorities said.
Yareli Velasco, who was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt with a red heart and pink pants, was left alone in the car.
Police spokeswoman Tracy Figone said the call came in at around 4 p.m. that a car was stolen from the 200 block of West Sunrise Boulevard.

The alert had asked for people to be on the lookout for a 20-year-old man wearing a dark long-sleeved jacket or shirt, blue jeans and Timberland boots. He was driving a green 2014 Chevrolet Cruze with a Florida tag number BPS7436.
The man was not with the car when the child was found.
