Grand Rapids – A toddler was found safe Wednesday after the car the child was in was stolen, Grand Rapids police said.

Officers located the child inside the running vehicle with the help of a bystander, Sgt. John Wittkowski said. Officers located the car and the child about seven minutes after the vehicle was stolen, he said.

The child is between 2 and 3 years old, but police have not released whether it is a boy or girl.
