  • ABANDONED CAR: Police search stolen vehicle ditched in Saline County.

Little Rock police report that a car with a one-year-old and six-year-old inside was stolen from a service station at 7700 Scott Hamilton Road this morning.

Police said they received a call from Saline County not long after that said the children had been dropped off at a residence in Saline County and police went to pick the children up. The vehicle was found later, too, but a search continues for the person who took the Ford Escape.

Police said the theft from an Exxon station was reported at 7:06 a.m. The call from Saline County came at 7:30 a.m. and the children were returned to their mother. At 8 a.m., the vehicle was spotted near Autumnwood and Chicot Roads.

KARK's Marci Manley said police told her the car had been left running with children inside. The children were dropped at a "random" house, she said.
