Police were called after a baby was taken from a day care center in Florida.
Antoinette Jordan went to pick up her children from the day care center, and she left her 9-month-old child inside.
When she came out, her car and her baby were gone.
The mother called police, thinking that her car was stolen.
The school went into lockdown after Jordan’s older daughter said that she saw “two white males get in the car and leave.”
“I thought somebody kidnapped her,” Antoinette Jordan said. The Orlando Police Department soon tracked down the car at the Xpress Finance and General Auto on John Young Parkway, about four miles from the day care.
Jordan realized that her car was repossessed because she had missed a payment of $199. “I was not worried about my car, I was just worried about my daughter,” she said.
Jordan, who was left stranded without her car at the day care center, said that the repo man should have checked the car before taking it.
