FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — The two children who were abducted in a stolen vehicle Sunday afternoon have been found safe, police said.

At approximately 3:30 p.m. Mar. 1, an unknown suspect stole a car that had two children in the backseat in the 4000 block of Sigma Road.

While the car owner was checking their mail, the suspect — possibly male — got in and drove off. It is unknown at this time if the suspect knew the children were in the backseat.

The children were later located at a Family Dollar on Maple Avenue in Dallas.

Assistant Manager Trixie Ballard said at the time, she didn’t understand why anyone would ​drop their young kids off at a shopping ​center.​
“We saw a vehicle that pulled ​up in the parking lot and the little ​boy ran out first… you could see him running out the car. ​He ran up to the door — he was running fast, he almost fell — and then the little girl came up behind him ​right afterwards,” Ballard recalled.
A customer called police, and they shortly learned​ they were the two children​ at the center of the Amber Alert ​issued out of Farmers Branch.

Although the children were located, the car has yet to be found.

Police say the car is a burgundy 2017 GMC Terrain with a Texas license plate HFL1525. The Terrain’s front passenger side quarter panel is black and the front passenger side door is red.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the tip line at 972-919-1406.
