KCK police say that stolen car with 3-year-old girl inside found, child is safe

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — KCK police say that a car was stolen with a 3-year-old girl sleeping the backseat on Wednesday evening. About 90-minutes after reporting that, Kansas City, Kan., Police Chief Terry Zeigler says that the car and girl have been found, and she is safe in the Tonganoxie area.

Officers were looking for a gray or silver 2006 Ford Focus with Missouri license plate: DP7-E5X, which was taken from 7th & Riverview.

FOX 4’s Robert Townsend reports that the suspect is a white female with a blonde ponytail and is wearing either a dark blue blouse or sleeveless dress, and was accompanied by a white man. There is no word on whether she or the man are under arrest.

Townsend adds that the kidnapped girl’s dad stopped at the Valero gas station, went inside to get some drinks and when he came back out, he says his running car was being stolen.

Previous information indicated that both parents were at the scene, we’ve since heard that just the dad was there. Police do not believe that the suspects knew the girl or her dad, they appear to be strangers.
