A 1-year-old girl was kidnapped in Georgia when thieves stole the car she was sleeping in — after her mom got out to deliver a DoorDash order, authorities said.
Royalty Grisby was in the backseat about 2 a.m. Thursday as her mother, who was working as a DoorDash driver, dropped off the food at a home in Stone Mountain and left the vehicle running, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Her mother, Elizabeth Grisby, then heard a door slam and turned around to see the maroon Nissan Armada taking off with her daughter still inside, authorities said.
“I had my keys in my pocket, and the only reason I didn’t lock the door was because I was in a residential, a nice neighborhood,” her mom told reporters. “I didn’t think anything like that would happen.”
Police said they believe the car was taken by two men who didn’t know a kid was inside.
Dekalb County police located the vehicle around 9 a.m. in a nearby neighborhood, but the young girl still remains missing.
“I just want my baby home,” Elizabeth Grisby told reporters. “That’s it. I just want her. You can take her to the hospital. You can take her anywhere. You can take her to a store. Just bring her home.”
A Levi’s Call — Georgia’s version of an Amber Alert — was issued to track down Royalty.
“We have a 1-year-old child out there that is not with her mother,” Capt. Brian DeLoach said, the outlet reported.
“We fear for her wellbeing. We want her to be safe and we want her back home with her mother. Every second that goes by is critical.”
