Police are still looking for the suspect and the stolen car.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Deputies responded to the Channelview area Monday after a mom reported her car was stolen with her young daughter inside.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office confirms a white Ford Fusion was stolen near the 1000 block of Pennygent at about 5:40 a.m. HCSO says a woman was leaving for work and put her one-year-old baby in her car seat and started the car. Deputies say the suspect drove off with the car when the woman ran inside the home to get something she needed.

Deputies say the suspect dropped the baby off on the porch of a home a few blocks away in the 15100 block of Elstree Lane.

Air 11 was overhead at about 6:45 a.m. as the mom was reunited with her child. The little girl was taken to the hospital to get checked out.

The car is still missing, however.
