Dolton police say the boy was sitting in a car seat in the back of a vehicle in the 1300 block of Sibley Blvd, around 7:35 a.m. when he is believed to have been abducted by an unidentified man.
Waters’ father went in to get food and left his rental car running and unlocked with the boy in the back seat, when someone jumped out and drove off, according to Dolton Police Chief Ernest Mobley.
At the time it was unclear if the boy was in danger. Police had said they hoped the person would later realize the boy was in the back seat.
They were in a black 2021 Kia K5 with North Carolina license plate HKB6993 and was last seen going north on Lincoln Avenue.
It is unclear if the vehicle was recovered.
The baby is now being examined at St. Margaret Hospital, Mobley said.
