FAIRVIEW, Ore. (AP) - Police have recovered a vehicle that was stolen in the Portland suburbs with an 11-year-old child in the backseat.

Fairview Police Chief Ken Johnson says the vehicle and the child were found in Milwaukie. The child was not harmed.

According to Johnson, the incident began at 9 a.m. Friday when a driver stopped at a gas station, and walked away from the vehicle while it was still running.

When the driver returned, the vehicle was gone along with the child who was inside. Authorities found the vehicle and the child about 25 minutes later. The suspect had fled.
