CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Police located and safely returned a child to his mother after the child was abducted in a car theft overnight.
The child's mother stopped to visit a relative who lives at W. 30th Street and Seymour Avenue around midnight early Tuesday.
She left her sleeping child in the van when she went in to visit.

The child was returned to his mother.
No information about the people who stole the van has been released. It is not clear if the mother will face any charges.
