Richmond County investigators continue their search for a car thief after someone stole a car with a 5-month-old baby inside Saturday.

According to Lt. Blaise Dresser, the 2010 Dodge Avenger was stolen from a convenience store at Fayetteville and Milledgeville roads around 8:50 p.m. The parent had left the infant inside the vehicle while he went into the store.

Police said the baby was located in his carseat not far from the store shortly after the incident occurred.

The vehicle was recovered this morning.

Dresser said no arrests have been made in the case.
