(AP) - Police are searching for the car thief who got more than he expected when he took an

idling car - a toddler in the backseat. The 2-year-old is OK after the scare late Tuesday in St. Louis.

Police say a car was left running at an ATM. The child's father got out to use the machine and while he was gone, someone stole the car with the child inside. Police found the car minutes later in an alley. The child slept through the whole ordeal. Officers are looking at ATM video in an effort to find the suspect.
