Los Angeles police are still searching for a man who stole an SUV on Wednesday morning out of a Granada Hills driveway with a 4-year-old boy inside. 

The mother of the boy had left the vehicle running as she went inside the home to get her infant, police said. As she returned, she saw a man in the driver’s seat backing out of the driveway.

The SUV was outfitted with a location transmitter, which police used to find the vehicle about 30 minutes later a few blocks away, police said. It had been abandoned at an intersection with the boy still inside. 

Police have few leads and no description of the man.
