A terrifying experience for a Lubbock family after their car was stolen--with their two year old still inside.
The father says he left his car running, with the child inside while he ran inside.
When he came back out, the car was speeding down the road.
The man frantically chased the car down the road, and luckily ran into a police officer.
The search began, and the car was found minutes later.
But the child was not inside the car.
Thankfully, a call came in that the boy had been found just a few blocks away from the home.
"The people that were in the car happened to drop my son off on the corner in traffic and everything--just took off and from the cops. Man, I'm grateful, just grateful he was alright and they found him quick," said the boys father.
The boy had been left at a nearby apartment complex with his diaper bag.
While the whole ordeal lasted about 30 minutes. The father said it felt like a lifetime, and he will never leave his child in the car unattended again.
