SAN ANTONIO – A 7-month-old girl is safe and sound after San Antonio police said she was in the backseat of her mother’s vehicle when it was stolen by a stranger overnight.

The incident happened around 7:53 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of SE Military Drive.

Police said the child, Kayebella Rose Robinson, was in the backseat of a 2005 gold Chevy Malibu Maxx when it was stolen.

Robinson’s mother told officers she parked her running vehicle at a store and went inside while another family member watched her vehicle from a distance.

It was moments later that an unknown man got into the running vehicle and took off from the scene, with the child still in the backseat.

An AMBER Alert was issued in Robinson’s disappearance and just hours later, at 12:10 a.m., police located the stolen vehicle, which was found abandoned at Avondale Ave & S. New Braunfels.

Robinson was asleep in the backseat when the vehicle was found, according to SAPD. She was uninjured but EMS checked her over just in case. The infant has since been reunited with her mother.

The man who stole the car is still on the run and the investigation continues.
