INDIANAPOLIS — After an hours-long search, IMPD has located a six-month-old baby that was presumed to be inside a vehicle stolen in the 1800 block of E. Michigan Street on Monday night.

IMPD began searching for the white Ford Fusion with a temporary plate that reads R229474 at about 9:30 p.m.

IMPD Lt. Shane Foley says the infant was reported to be found at 1:40 a.m. on Tuesday.

In the immediate aftermath, Foley said when the vehicle left the gas station, the driver left eastbound (in the wrong direction) on Michigan Street.

"I will make a plea to the individual that took this vehicle," Foley said. "Please call 911 anonymously. Let us know where the child is. Let us know where the vehicle is. Let us know if the child is in the vehicle. We are not concerned right now with locating the individual."

The vehicle was described as a white Ford Fusion with a white grill, silver rims, and passenger side damage.

According to IMPD, the suspect was reported to be wearing a red shirt as shown below.

No additional information about the circumstances surrounding the infant's disappearance or a possible suspect have been released.
