An Amber Alert has been issued for 2-year-old Isaiah Martinez of Garden City. Police are looking for a dark blue Dodge Durango with license plates 133 CLP.

— Garden City police say a 2-year-old who had been reported missing at 12:30 a.m. Thursday has been found nearly nine hours later.

Police Sgt. Michael Reagle says a relative found Issiah Martinez at 9:15 a.m. in a vehicle parked in an alley in Garden City, eight to 10 blocks from where he originally was taken.

Police say the boy's mother left Issiah in an SUV with the motor running while she went into an apartment to pick up her 10-month-old child, who was staying with an aunt.

When the mother came out, the vehicle and her son were gone. The boy's disappearance prompted the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to issue an Amber Alert.

Reagle says the boy appeared to be unharmed but was taken to a local medical facility to be examined.

It can be so tempting to leave a sleeping child in a car while you run in for just a second, especially if you are running in to carry out another sleeping child. Thank goodness this car thief didn't injure the child.

Thank goodness this boy was found unharmed. There are so many others that are not.

The article says the vehicle was left running. That is not a smart thing to do whatsoever.

He is found, so now I ask why any mother would leave a 2 yr old in a car while she went into a building?

There's a missing kid who could be at a grave risk of injury or death. There will be no turning these comments into a political soapbox. Focus on finding the boy.

Justanother(ignorant)face...It's amazing that ignorant people like you find ways to input your racist views on stories like this. Why don't you spend your time doing something productive, like taking a cultural immersion course.
