WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Authorities say two children are returned safely after their Mom left them in a car with the engine running. The woman's car was stolen with her two kids inside.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that Master Cpl. Michael Austin with Delaware State Police says the 25-year-old woman left her 5-year-old and 1-year-old children in the car in Wilmington Wawa parking lot while she made a quick purchase Thursday evening.

When she returned, the car and children were gone.

Austin says a passer-by saw a man abandoning the car in a driveway of a residence five minutes after it was taken.

Both children were still in the car and uninjured. The man ran away and police are looking for him.
