FOREST PARK, Ga. — A 1-year-old girl who was in the back seat of a car when it was stolen outside a daycare center near Atlanta was found safe Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Police then found the missing car and the girl, asleep inside the vehicle, near Scott Drive and Holly Circle in Clayton County shortly before 7 a.m.

Authorities had issued a child abduction alert early Wednesday morning after the 1994 green Honda Accord was stolen outside the 24-hour Playskool daycare facility in Forest Park, just south of Atlanta.

The child’s mother, Victoria Buchannon, was picking her up from the 24-hour daycare facility shortly after midnight, police said. Buchannon then went back into the daycare to get an older sibling, and the suspect jumped into the car and drove off, authorities said.

“I just want my baby back. Whoever got her, please return her. That’s all I ask. You can have the car,” Buchannon said in an interview with WSB-TV before the child was found.

The child was reunited with her mother shortly after police found the car, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
