Gardaí in Dublin are investigating after a car was stolen while it had an infant in the back seat.

The incident happened at Park Vale, Baldoyle at around 7.30am this morning.

The dark navy Opel Vectra hatchback was taken from outside a house at Parkvale in Baldoyle at half past seven this morning - prompting a massive garda search with mobile units alerted across the city.

It was found 45 minutes later in Clongriffin, with the unharmed infant still inside, and she was safely reunited with her parents shortly afterwards.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.

They have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to contact Raheny Garda Station on 01-666-4300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111, or any Garda station.
