Toddler Helps Cops Find Him After Carjacking by Honking

By    |   Thursday, 15 Jan 2015 12:42 PM

A carjacked 3-year-old Utah toddler helped police find the stolen vehicle with him inside it by repeatedly honking the horn while authorities tried to track him down.

Ogden police told KSTU-TV they received a call about 7 a.m. that a white 2012 Mazda was taken outside of a daycare with a young boy inside. His mother, Elizabeth Barrios, was dropping off another child at the daycare and left little Aiden inside the vehicle with her cellphone.

Police called Barrios's cell phone in the off chance the suspect or Aiden would answer, and Aiden did. He told officers he was alone and that the vehicle had been abandoned.

Officers then instructed Aiden to start honking the horn. Police found him a short time later.  He was back with his mom within 45 minutes.

"He honked the horn until there was an officer there," Barrios told Fox News Insider. "And we were close and we got to him. He was scared, that's for sure. But he's OK."

Based on Aiden's description of the suspect, Ogden police sent out a warning on the man via Twitter.


Police also recognized Aiden for his actions.


Many on social media were impressed with Aiden's actions, but some let his mother have it for leaving him in the car unattended.
