(Newser) – A man saw a doll inside a parked truck and called police about an unresponsive infant, leading to the recovery of a stolen truck and a very real baby, reports the AP. Lumberton Police Department Capt. Terry Parker tells the Fayetteville Observer that a woman reported her pickup truck stolen and 3-week-old baby missing Monday. Parker says the woman was taking two other children inside a house when someone stole the vehicle and baby inside it.

Police issued an alert, and Parker says the truck and baby were abandoned in a nearby parking lot minutes later. He says a man walking past the truck noticed a window was down and peered inside. Parker says the man saw a doll lying on the floor and called police, who found the infant uninjured in a car seat in the back of the truck. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday.
