OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have found two missing children in a stolen vehicle in suburban Kansas City.

Olathe police said in a news release that the children disappeared Tuesday night after the suspect attempted to steal a vehicle from a car dealership. After a witness confronted him, the suspect abandoned the stolen vehicle. Police said he then walked to a nearby tire shop where he got into a running vehicle with two girls already inside and drove away with the 2- and 6-year olds.

Officers located the vehicle parked at a retirement home about 2 ½ hours later with the children safe inside.

The suspect hasn’t been found. Police said the investigation is ongoing.
