Thief steals running car -- with baby on board

(KSWB/CNN Newsource)

The hunt continues for the man who stole a car with a 5-month-old girl in the backseat. Escondido police say the man drove about three miles before abandoning the car at the Eagles Point Apartment Complex.

The baby girl was a little warm when police found her in the blue Toyota Camry Thursday night. Thankfully, she was unhurt.

It was about 3 p.m. Thursday when the child's mother was getting her settled into her carseat in the parking lot just outside of their apartment on Rocky Springs Road. At one point, the mother ran back into her apartment to grab something and left the engine running.

When she came out moments later, her car was gone.

The blue Camry was found about an hour later, with the windows down and baby still in the carseat. The man who drove off in the car was nowhere to be found.
