A 1-year-old boy was reunited with his family after someone stole the car he was sitting in while his mother ran into a Southwest Miami-Dade home Monday night, police said.
According to police, the mother stopped at 26980 SW 143rd Pl. to visit a friend just before 8 p.m.
When she headed back to the car it wasn't there. Instead there was a bicycle.
She immediately called the police and a “be on the lookout,” order was issued. At about 8:40 p.m. the car — with the unharmed baby inside — was found abandoned at 140th Avenue and Southwest 272nd Street.
Never miss a local story.
The man had not been located as of Monday night.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
