Two kidnapped children found after Amber Alert in SF

Just four hours after the San Francisco Police Department announced an Amber Alert, a four-year-old Asian girl and her one-year-old brother have been found.

ABC7 News reports a father making a door dash delivery left his van running to drop off the order. When he returned, the stunned father discovered his van missing with the two kids inside.

“I yelled at him and told him to get out and two of my kids are in the car,” Fang said. “One is a 4-year-old girl and another is a 1-year-old boy…They speak Mandarin only. I just want my kids back.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reports police discovered the children safe along with the van in San Francisco’s Bay View District.

Police said around 1:15 a.m. they found the children, who were safe, along with the vehicle in the Bayview district.

Shortly before 11 p.m., this reporter’s cell phone went off with a shrieking alarm that woke me and my wife out of a dead sleep. The Amber Alert went out to residents in  San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Marin, and Santa Clara counties.

According to the Chronicle, police mobilized all units to search for the children.

The suspect described as male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes, around 20 to 30 years old remains at large.
