Sleeping boy snatched from dad's car

AN infant boy was snatched on Saturday afternoon from his father's car which had been parked in a cul-de-sac in the Wujiaochang area of Yangpu District.

The two-and-a-half-year-old had been sleeping in the back seat of his book dealer father's car while his father went buy stock at a book wholesale market at Wujiaochang, Xinmin Evening News reported today.

The father, who was identified as Zheng and sells books at Songjiang University Town, had locked his sleeping son in the car, not wanting to wake him. He rolled one of the rear windows down slightly for fresh air.

But when he returned at 3.30pm he found his son had vanished and the rear door was unlocked.

He told the newspaper someone must have opened the door through the partly-opened window.

Video clips from a security camera at the gate of a community opposite the lane showed a man riding a scooter into the lane at about 3:22pm and leaving with a small head poking from inside the front of his jacket.

The man went back to the lane at about 5:08pm with another person on his scooter. He left the scene two minutes later with a three-wheel scooter following him.

Zheng has closed his book store to look for his son.

A missing person sign posted by Zheng reads: "Lost - Zheng Chao, male, born in December 2006, about 80 centimeters tall last seen wearing a blue sweater, black trousers and white shoes on."
