Child inside carjacked vehicle recovered

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Four-year old Julisa is now back with her parents after her mom's car was stolen while she was  inside. They're both relieved and in disbelief.  The little girl nodded her head when I asked if she was Ok and happy to be back with with her mom and dad.

Her mother said she was dropping off food to her brother when she came outside and noticed the car was missing with her daughter inside.

"My baby inside the car was sleeping," said Mannque Velazquez, the father.

Police were at two scenes, because they said whoever stole the car from outside a house on 40th and Broadway then dropped the girl off to a stranger about five streets over. That person then flagged over a police officer but the driver kept on going in the stolen car.

"It's not important because the family is important. The car is not...maybe in three or four months, we can buy another one. It's ok," said Velazquez.

Both parents said this is a lesson learned the hard way.

"For everyone be careful... take the key, take it out," he said.

The plate number is CNWN08. If you have any information, you're asked to call police.
