BUENA PARK, Calif. – A 2-year-old Orange County boy who was in a minivan when it was stolen from a school parking lot in Buena Park Tuesday morning has been located unharmed, police said.
The little boy was in a silver 2017 Toyota Sienna that was stolen around 9:30 a.m. from the parking lot of Emery School, according to the Buena Park Police Department.
The boy’s mother, who has another child enrolled at the school, left the minivan running with the toddler in the vehicle while she went inside the school to drop off an item, police said.
