    Default Leaving kids in car

    And this is why you don't leave young kids unattended in cars.

    What happened was terrible and Im glad the little tot was found safe. But I hope the police gave the father a stern talking to.

    Or you know, why you always check a car for passengers before you steal it

    If this is the story I am thinking of, the mum wasn't even away from the vehicle she had just gotten out to hand tue other kids over or something like that. The video didn't play for me and the story didn't tell anything about how it all unfolded.

    POLICE are confident of tracking down a man who abducted a two-year-old girl during a car theft on the NSW mid north coast.

    The girl was sitting in a parked station wagon with her six-year-old sister next to Coffs Central Shopping Centre, when the car was taken around 10.45am (AEST) on Monday.
    The six-year-old managed to escape as the wagon took off and unbuckled her sister's seatbelt.
    However, police say the younger girl was too frightened to move.
    "The two year-old was too scared to go, she was frozen with fear," Inspector Joanne Reid told AAP.
    Police say the girls' father left the station wagon briefly to go into the shops.
    It was found a short distance away around 12.15pm (AEST) with the little girl inside and unharmed.
    "She was very, very distressed but otherwise ok," Inspector Reid said.
    Police are looking for a man in his 20s described as being of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander appearance.
    Inspector Reid says officers are confident of making an arrest over what was an "opportunistic incident".
    "We are confident of making an arrest but it's about gathering everything together to make sure we're on the right track," she said.

    I don't think the mother was there. All articles I have read said the father was looking after them and went to the shops, leaving them in the car. One story said the dad was getting ciggies, another said he was getting coffee.

    So the dad left kids in the car to go into the shops?

    I'll put my hand up and say I leave the boys in ths car when I pay for petrol. Car locked, clear view.

    Apart from that, nope.

    Obviously dad didn't lock the car. And if the theif was able to take off quickly I'm assuming the keys were left in their too.

    Thank goodness the little girl was found safe. Obviously upset but safe.

    Yes,I heard the keys were left in the car....I really can't get my head around why someone would do that, with kids in the car?? That's just asking for trouble...
    Glad the little girl is safe...how scary.

    What a brave little girl, and quick thinking!

    I always leave the girls in the car, locked, with keys in my hand when I pay for petrol. Car is always in my view. For anything else I of course get them out and take them with me. I don't know what this father was thinking???
