MIAMI -

A car with three children inside it was stolen outside of a grocery store in Miami, police say.

About 3:15 p.m. Monday, a man went inside the Little Haiti grocery store at Northwest 1st Court and 62nd Street and left his 7-year-old nephew Isaiah Paul and his 6-year-old daughter Kaila and 5-year-old son Anthony Milhomme inside. When he walked out of the grocery store, the car and the children were gone.

"He does not know who hopped onto the driver's seat and the vehicle took off," said Miami Police Det. Willie Moreno.

"Please, please, help me find my babies," said Kaila and Anthony's mother. "They missing me right now. They're scared. Please, I need my babies."

The children were located about three blocks away about 5 p.m.
