Associate Press Release

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities are searching for a man they say stole a car with a 2-year-old girl in the backseat in southwest Florida.

Fort Myers Police say the suspect stole the car from an apartment complex Friday and quickly dropped the child off down the road. The suspect then allegedly drove to another location and jumped into another car, possibly a white sedan and drove off.

The News-Press reports a woman walking her dog found the little girl crying and asking for her mother. The child appeared to be unharmed and was reunited with her mother.

Police said the woman had just arrived home at her apartment and was helping another person out of the car when the suspect jumped in and took off.

The suspect faces grand theft auto charges.
