Children safe after stolen minivan recovered with them waiting inside

Van was stolen after the driver left the engine running while he made a food delivery

A minivan that was stolen Saturday night in San Francisco with two young children inside it has been recovered and the children appear to be safe, police said Sunday morning.

Officers assigned to the Bayview Station located the silver 2014 Honda Odyssey in the 1200 block of Fitzgerald Avenue around 1 a.m., with the two children, ages two and four, still inside.

The children were taken to a hospital for medical evaluation but appear to be ok, and were being reunited with their parents, police said.

The van was stolen just after 8:45 p.m. Saturday when the driver left it parked with the engine running on the 2100 block of Jackson Street while he made a food delivery. The children were waiting inside.

The suspects that took the van have not yet been located and police did not have a description available as of Sunday morning, but continued to search for information leading to their arrest.
