Chattanooga police are searching for a suspect who allegedly stole a car with a 2-year-old boy inside Tuesday evening, according to a CPD release.

Police said the suspect stole a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander from the Vance Ave. area. About an hour later, police found that the suspect had left the child and vehicle near Derby and 4th St. 

The child appeared to be fine, but due to high temperatures police transported him to a local hospital to undergo a full medical examination, according to the release.

The suspect is still on the run and faces kidnapping, endangerment and theft charges if located and identified.
