    The question arises, where were her parents? Will there be any investigation into her living arrangements? There are reasons for a 7yr old to be left unaccompanied but it is illegal.

    It’s illegal, dangerous and stupid to leave a child in a running vehicle. And that’s not even accounting for the time and location.I hope they have pressed charges against the mother.

    I would take a guess the girl fell a sleep earlier in the evening in the car the parents decided to leave the child in the car. To keep from waking up the child. This just goes to show do not leave valuable items in your car lucky the girl was found safe. I can agree it was not best idea.

    We don’t know what the circumstances were when the car was stolen. Perhaps the family getting out of the car when it was stolen. If the child was sleeping alone, I’d scrutinize the parents.

    Fortunately, the child was unharmed.

    The real question is. Why was she left in a car alone at 345 am.
