Four-year-old goes missing with stolen auto


A frantic search for a four-year-old girl who disappeared when her family vehicle was stolen from the driveway of her Toronto home ended Friday morning when she was reunited with her parents after going missing for more than three hours. Ranbir Dhillon told reporters.

Christina Nguyen was in the auto with the engine running while her parents went back inside to retrieve her younger sister.

"We just receive positive information", said Det.

Anyone who sees the vehicle is asked to immediately call 911.

Police say a black, 4-door 2008 Toyota Camry was taken from outside the girl's home in the city's north end in the area of Jane St. and Lawrence Ave.at about 6 a.m. When they came back out, the vehicle - and Christina - were gone.

She was found inside the auto, which was left running, at Rosemount Avenue and Weston Road. It was actually someone that was walking by that found the auto. Dhillon said. "We obviously want to find out who did this".

Police arrived on the scene and affirmed the girl was fine. Repeated alerts were issued by Toronto police and a frantic search ensued.

Almost two hours later, police got a report that the vehicle was spotted north of Mississauga, near the junction of Highways 401 and 403, being driven erratically. We are hoping to find that auto quickly. "You should be there with your child, especially if they're this young".
