Sleeping child found safe in van after Ohio theft

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police in Cleveland say a van stolen with a sleeping child inside was found about an hour later, and the 3-year-old boy wasn't hurt.

Police investigating the overnight theft say the boy had been left sleeping in the back seat of the van in a driveway while his mother was visiting someone at a home. Officers say someone stole the van on Tuesday, shortly after midnight.

The boy was still inside the vehicle when it was later found about a mile away in the backyard of a different home. It wasn't damaged.

There was no immediate word on any charges or any suspect in the van theft.
