Car Allegedly Used in Child's Kidnapping Found in Philly

Philadelphia Police

The stolen rental car that police say was used in the kidnapping was found early Thursday on Williams Street in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia.

A car was found Thursday that investigators believe was used in the kidnapping of a two-year-old boy.

Police say Tymire Dior Smith was later found alone, and wandering near 66th and Malvern in the Overbrook nieghborhood of Philadelphia a few hours after being snatched.

The boy was abducted by three armed men around 10 p.m Tuesday from his home in the 400 block of Lincoln Drive West in Upper Dublin, according to police. They say the armed men assaulted the boy's father and stole the father's rental car.

That car, a dark-colored Chrysler 300, was found abandoned on Thursday morning on Williams Street in Mt. Airy. Police say a resident alerted them because it's not a car they normally see in their neighborhood.

Police gave NBC10 an exclusive picture of that car and hope it will help catch the three men behind the abduction.

Investigators are still trying to figure out a motive but say the crime was not random.
