A 2-year-old Connecticut boy has been found safe after a car he was in was stolen in Hartford Thursday when his father left the keys in the ignition while he ran to the store, police said.

Hartford Police had been searching for Luis Trinidad Jr., who was in the rear seat of a car stolen on Main Street around 4 p.m. His father had left the car running while he ran into a minimart and someone jumped into the car and drove off, not realizing the child was in the back. 

The car was found dumped in Hartford a short time after it was stolen, but the boy was still missing. He was later found safe in Bristol and taken to a police department, where he was reunited with his parents. 

Authorities say one suspect is in custody and another was hospitalized for evaluation because he may have had drugs in his system, according to NBC Connecticut.
