NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say a 6-year-old boy who was in the back seat of a stolen SUV has been found safe.

Police say Ronald Mowatt and the stolen 2007 Acura MDX were located in Brooklyn around 3 p.m. Monday, about two hours after the start of an ordeal that prompted a citywide search.

Mowatt was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Police have not announced any arrests.

Police say the vehicle was stolen around 1:15 p.m. as it idled outside a plumbing supply store in Brooklyn’s Canarsie neighborhood.

Police say the child’s uncle, who’d been driving the youngster around, left the vehicle running when he went into the store.
