Two children, a 1-year-old and 3-year-old, were inside a vehicle that was stolen from a Ramada Inn Saturday.


Two children, ages 1 and 3, were found safe Sunday in Orlando after a carjacker stole a vehicle from an Orlando hotel.

The car was taken from a Ramada Inn on South John Young Parkway in Orlando.

According to Orlando police, the mother of the children stopped at the hotel around 8 p.m. to check room availability.  She left the children in the car while she went inside when someone stole the car, police said.

While searching for the vehicle, an officer found the children abandoned on a sidewalk while still in their child restraint seats.

Neither child was injured and both were reunited with their mother.

The stolen vehicle has not been located.

Anyone with any information about the case is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
