DETROIT (AP) -

Police say they have found a 3-month-old girl who was the subject of a morning Amber Alert.

The alert was issued after her father reported a car with her inside was stolen after he left it running outside a Detroit liquor store.

Police say the man told investigators he left the child, Dakota Grimes, inside the car about 1 a.m. Monday on the city's east side and found the car and the girl missing when he went back outside.

WDIV, a TV station in Detroit reports that the baby was found, still in her car seat, at around 8 a.m. on a porch just a mile from where the car was stolen. The station reports that the baby appears to be OK, but she was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Police Chief James Craig says officers are looking for three suspects in the theft of the car, which was recovered Monday afternoon in nearby Harper Woods.
