Missing baby found after 5-hour search
Ms Hong Nguyen, 34, was on her morning jog when she heard a baby crying.
She was surprised to see a baby girl still strapped in her car seat near a running trail in Houston, Texas.
The infant was unharmed except for some ant bites.
"I thought the baby was abandoned," Ms Nguyen said, reported NBC.
But a child abduction alert had gone out five hours ago for eight-month-old Genesis Haley.
She had been missing since the car she was in was stolen on Monday.

The thief had made off with the Saturn Ion when Haley's mother went to pay for petrol at a petrol kiosk.
The car was later found abandoned less than a kilometre away but with the baby missing.
"That’s my duty as a human being to (report the missing child),” Ms Nguyen said, reported khou.com.
“I can’t believe - it was so scary to see that situation.”
