HOUSTON (KPRC) -- An Amber Alert was canceled after a missing 8-month-old baby was found safe--abandoned in a vacant lot in Houston, Texas.

Authorities say the baby, Genesis Haley, was in her mother's car when it was stolen early Monday morning at a Texaco Gas station in north Houston.

Houston police say at around 1 a.m. Monday, the baby's mother left the sleeping baby in her running vehicle to go inside the convenience store. She then saw a suspect get into her vehicle and drive away.
