KENNER, LA (AP) - The Kenner Police Department is searching for the person who stole a vehicle with a 5-year-old inside.

Investigators said the child was found unharmed about 40 minutes later on Georgetown Drive. The Pathfinder was found abandoned in the 300 block of Emerson Drive.

Police describe the person as a dark-skinned man, possibly wearing a hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kenner Police Department at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
