LITHONIA, Ga -- For more than three hours Tuesday, 2-year-old Myrai Robinson was the focus of a massive search.

She was in the backseat of a van that was left running outside New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, when someone stole the vehicle.

It all ended happily, when a good samaritan saw the van and the child, and called 911.


The person who stole the van is still on the loose, but the caregiver, Rhonda Rivers, remains jailed charged with child cruelty.

DeMarco Morgan sat down with Myrai's mom Wednesday to talk about the scary moments and remarkable ending.
