JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi police say they’ve found a 3-year-old boy who was taken with a car, and he’s unharmed.

The search began at midday Monday after Sharon Knight told police that a 17-year-old she identified only as Mike sped away in her 2000 gray Chevrolet Impala with her son, King Knight. Sharon Knight tells news outlets she left the boys in the car while she visited a potential rental house.

Jackson Police found the car at an apartment complex about 3 miles (5 kilometers) away. The 17-year-old walked away from the car with the child. Police took him into custody for questioning and retrieved the toddler soon afterward. The teen hasn’t been charged.

Sharon Knight says the teenager, whom she called a family friend, had lived with her for two weeks.
