Authorities say the vehicle, with the child inside, was located a few blocks away.
Police say the child was unharmed.
“Leaving a child in a car unattended is dangerous for several reasons. Number one is temperature – how hot is it out. Then the likelihood of the vehicle being taken,” says Capt. James Stevens of Hamilton Township Police.
