    Lessons to be learnt for sure, but I think now's the time to just be happy that they have their baby back home.

    The conference was short and sweet..

    Baby was found in a car in a driveway. Woman left her home on Rogers St. this afternoon and found Blaise inside the car. Police not sure if it was her vehicle yet, they are yet to interview her.

    Blaise is in good condition and going to hospital to be checked over.

    Investigation still ongoing. Any tips please call.

    WHAT A RELIEF!!! WOOOO HOOO!!

    So glad my suspicions were wrong but when you've been here for so long and seen this same story play out over and over again with horrific results, it can be hard to not be suspicious.
    But we have to remember that not everyone responds the same way in stressful/traumatic scenerios.
    Just because my face would be a mess of tears and swollen red puffy eyes, doesn't mean everyone else would be the same. Everyone is different. Some do not express emotions like we expect them to.

    I'm so happy to be wrong here! I hope that little guy is ok and has no lasting trauma. I wonder how long he'd been in the car. So glad he made it home safely though.

    That’s really odd. He was found inside a different vehicle alone? In a driveway? And a random woman found him but they’re not even sure if it’s her car or not. Very very intrigued by what’s going on here. A car thief who didn’t know what to do? Why leave the first car and bring the baby into another?

    Sounds like that. I looked at the street where he was found, and the area where the van was located, and there's no way this baby made it there on his own if he were let out of the van to wander. A mile as the crow flies, but it's a LOT longer than that if you follow streets. Additionally there's a creek that he'd have had to swim across.

    There is definitely an odd set of circumstances surrounding this baby’s disappearance but I’m happy he has been reunited with his parents.

    I am so very relieved and happy that this precious boy is safe. But it just gets weirder and weirder. Did the carjacker/kidnapper keep the baby overnight and find an unlocked car to leave him in today? If the kidnapper made an effort to keep him safe and return him, why leave him in a random vehicle without any idea when he would be discovered? So odd.

    I think it was an opportunist who realised 6 minutes down the road that there was a baby in the car. Rather than abandon the car and baby, decided to take baby because it was 1 am and Blaise didn't have much on. He may have been worried he wouldn't be found.

    I'm struggling to understand why the person would leave him in another car though. Maybe on a random street because there was no CCTV? Also, if he knocked on the door and ran then maybe he was worried they would answer before he could get away.

    Could be he knows the woman whose car he left him in.

    Maybe a thief with a heart :).

    ETA: I think he probably took care of him last night and put him in the car today.

    Why go upstairs empty handed? She did not mention what she was carrying. I don't care if you have to pee or not, you don't leave a baby inside a car with the keys in the drink holder. Why leave the keys in the car at all? Simply makes no sense to me.

    I would put the baby in the crib while I was gone to the car to unload anything. That's just me. JMO
