OCOEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in central Florida are looking for a man they say stole a car from a gas station with an infant inside.
    
Ocoee police say the child's mother left her alone in her car Monday morning when she went inside the gas station. The car was running and unlocked when a man hopped inside and took off.
    
The Orlando Sentinel reports (http://thesent.nl/W01qan ) the car was found abandoned about a block away with the child still inside. The 5-month-old was not harmed.
    
The mother is being questioned by police.
