Police find 18-month-old girl taken in stolen car

(MCT) — Police say they have found an 18-month-old girl who was left in a running car that was stolen from a parking lot in Bensenville early Thursday morning.

The car was found hours later abandoned about a mile away, and Kimberly Delgado was still strapped in her car seat in the back of the black Buick, police said. She appeared safe and unharmed, but was being checked as precaution.

"She was still bundled up," Bensenville Police chief Frank Kosman said.

The mother was reunited with the girl while paramedics checked the toddler in an ambulance where the car was found, he said.

"She was very happy," Kosman said. "She was crying and hugging the child."

An Amber Alert was issued after the mother left Kimberly in the car while she went into an apartment building at 940 W. Irving Park Road in Bensenville around 12:40 a.m., police said. "A subject walked out the foyer and walked directly to her car parked directly in front of the foyer. . .and drove away," Kosman said.

Kosman said he had no reason to believe the man knew the child was inside, and they continued to search for him. He does not live in the apartment building but police believes he knows people who do. "We have good leads," he said.

Police described him as Hispanic, 5-foot-4, 35 to 40 years old, heavy build, black hair, dark complected and wearing a red sweater.
