Toronto police searching for stolen car with child inside

An Amber Alert issued around 7:35 a.m. Friday morning identified her as Christina Nguyen.

About three-and-a-half hours after someone had absconded with the auto, a black Toyota Camry, the vehicle was spotted by a passerby in the city's west-end, abandoned in a parking lot with the engine still running, said Toronto Police Detective Ranbir Dhillon. After paramedics checked the child for any injury, she was released to her parents and driven home by police.

Police are warning that if you see this vehicle, do not approach it. In the end, a passerby spotted the abandoned auto not far from the Nguyen family home, in a parking area of a townhouse complex in the Jane Street and Lawrence Avenue area. The child was left by her mother in the back seat of the family auto in the driveway of their home while she went to fetch her other daughter.

"This is the best possible outcome", Toronto Police Det. Ranbir Dhillon during a press conference Friday morning.

Can you please just draw the design in for us, Starbucks , and put a stop to this nonsense? Cheer up! Spring is on its way. SBUX says that the colors were chosen to represents the few burst of color that start to appear after a long, gray winter.

But Dhillon also reminded parents not to leave children unattended in vehicles, whether the engine is running or not. "We are concerned for the child's safety for obvious reasons".

The suspect in the theft remains at large. The girl was inside the vehicle when it was recovered and is doing OK, police say. "Our officers got on scene, confirmed that she's inside and okay".

Anyone who sees the vehicle is asked to immediately call 911. Christina is in good health.
