CBS 59 talked today with a Milwaukee woman who got a call from her daughter-in-law after she found the empty car with the baby inside over three miles from here.
Milwaukee Police found the car at 39th street and Silver Spring Drive around 8:20 PM.
The women said that baby Taratino Carter was peacefully sitting in the car when he was found.
The car was taken, around 6:00 Sunday evening at A&S gas station on West Good Hope Road.

CBS 58 spoke with the owner of the gas station yesterday and here's what he had to say.
“I took her in my car and I tried to tell her ok let's chase him. She was on her my phone and she called and gave out the description of the car and the child's description and we went on the road speeding up to 70 miles per hour just to chase the car,” said Lindergeet Singh.
Police are still working on finding the suspect, but they do have some strong leads.
