SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — An Amber Alert has been issued for a 1-year-old child who was in a car that was apparently stolen from a Springfield parking lot.

The Springfield News-Leader reports (http://sgfnow.co/YKuSlW ) that the child, Harmony Blue, was in the car with another older child when the car was stolen from the parking lot Saturday afternoon. Police say the children's father left the children and the keys in the car while he was in a store.

The older child was dropped off nearby and recovered by police and has been reunited with his father.

Springfield police Lt. Brian Phillips says police are searching for a 2002 gray Nissan Maxima with Missouri license plate YG6-K5R.

The missing girl is described as mixed race with black hair and brown eyes, wearing a blue one-piece sleeper.
