Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta police say a thief who stole a vehicle with a 4-year-old child in a back seat abandoned the GMC Terrain nearby after realizing the child was inside. The child wasn't hurt.

Police were searching for the suspect in the car theft, which happened shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday at a gas station near Marietta Boulevard and Bolton Road in northwest Atlanta.

Hilary Grotewold told police she pulled up at an air pump and got out to put air in a tire when the suspect drove off. Witnesses said she chased after the vehicle, screaming that "my baby is inside the vehicle that just got stolen."

Police said the suspect abandoned the vehicle at a CVS pharmacy down the street, and the baby was found unharmed.
