JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Authorities across Mississippi are searching for a young boy who was inside a car when it was stolen from a grocery store parking lot in Jackson.
Police say they’ve issued a child abduction alert in the search for 6-year-old Kingston Frazier of Jackson after the crime early Thursday.
Kingston was inside a silver 2000 Toyota Camry when the car was stolen outside a Kroger on Interstate 55 in Jackson around 2 a.m. Thursday.
Hinds County sheriff’s officials say the child’s mother left her Toyota Camry running with Kingston inside.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that two men in a Honda pulled up, and the passenger jumped in the Camry with the child inside. Both vehicles sped away.
