OKLAHOMA CITY -

Terrifying moments for a metro mother Tuesday morning as a stolen car investigation turns into the kidnapping of her two children. Police are now looking for four teenagers they said stole the car with the kids inside.

A visit to a minister's home near Northwest 7th and Greenvale Road quickly took an unexpected turn for a metro mother.

Silvia Gonzalez stepped out of her running car and left her 10-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter inside.

“She had her key fob in her pocket and believed the vehicle could not be driven without the key fob in the vehicle,” said Msgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department.

Gonzalez told police only moments later she heard the car doors open.

“The vehicle pulled away,” said Knight. “There were four juveniles that drove away in the vehicle.”

The teens forced the 10-year-old out of the car at the end of the street, but the younger child was still inside.

“They drove on,” said Knight. “Apparently not realizing there was still a baby in the vehicle.”

The frightened mother ran after the car and the woman's pastor jumped in his car to follow the suspects, but lost sight of them. 

Officers found the stolen car abandoned in an apartment parking lot near Northwest 10th and Greenvale Road.

Gonzalez was reunited with her children, while she held them, police swabbed her car for fingerprints.

The four teens are still outstanding but if DNA helps locate them, police said they could face serious consequences.

“There’s no indication that the suspects knew there were children inside the vehicle,” said Knight. “There’s every indication they were just trying to steal a vehicle and this one happened to have kids in it.”

If you have any information that could help police, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
