Missing girl, stolen SUV found after Renton AMBER Alert
RENTON, WA – A 5-year-old girl was brought to safety and reunited with her family on Wednesday, according to Renton police, after being kidnapped in a car theft in a downtown Safeway parking lot. An AMBER alert went off just before 2 p.m., about an hour after an unidentified man stole a gray Toyota SUV carrying the young girl.
A Renton police spokesman confirmed the child and vehicle were found just after 2:20 p.m., thanks to a customer at a nearby company who noticed a child was crying in the SUV. Police are still looking for the suspect and posted a surveillance photo late Wednesday afternoon.
Further details of the investigation were not immediately available.
