Child feared abducted in stolen car in SW Philadelphia found safe

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police say a 6-year-old girl feared abducted in a stolen car has been found safe Saturday afternoon.

Officers responded to a 911 call made by the girl's aunt around 2 p.m. It was believe that the girl was a passenger in a vehicle that was carjacked.

However, it turned out the aunt was mistaken and the child was never in the vehicle.

Instead, she was with her father and was never in any danger.

Police are sorting out the details, and working to determine if a 2017 Chevy Impala reported stolen at 58th and Warrington streets and later located at 69th and Belmar streets was in fact stolen.
