    Police: RI Man Stole Running Vehicle With 2 Kids Inside

    Rhode Island police are looking for a man they say stole a vehicle with two young children inside it.

    Providence police say the children, an 8-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, were found safe just minutes after their father's SUV was taken.

    Their father parked the Ford Escape with the engine running at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and walked away to meet another family member.

    An unknown suspect got into the vehicle and drove away.
