COLUMBUS, Ga. -

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- Police say a 12-month-old boy who was kidnapped by a car thief in west Georgia has been found safe.
 
Early Wednesday morning, Columbus police Sgt. Mark Richards informed search teams looking for the boy that he had been found. Police said the child was found on an unspecified road and was back with his parents.
 
Authorities say Ronald Gray was taken from a BP station on St. Marys Road Tuesday night, after the child's father left the car running and walked inside the convenience store. Police say the suspect jumped into the unattended car and headed north toward Interstate-185.
 
Police Sgt. Anthony Locey tells The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://bit.ly/15xcQMq) that it's possible the car thief did not realize the child was inside. Police were still searching for suspects in the case.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
