A missing 8-month-old baby was found alive by an observant jogger, hours after she was abducted.

A woman was visiting Houston was Vietnam, and went out for her first jog in the area. She heard cries, then found baby Genesis under some bushes, strapped in her car seat, with several ant bites.

The woman stayed with the baby until police arrived. One of the officers removed the baby from the seat, and wrapped the 8-month-old in his uniform to calm her.

Genesis was taken hours earlier from a Texas gas station. Her mother parked at the gas station and left Genesis in the back with the car running while she went inside quickly. Within seconds, the car, and baby inside, were gone.

The car was found abandoned a little later, but baby Genesis was missing.

Police say Genesis was in good overall health when she was found; suffering from several ant bites and needing food.
