A few terrifying moments early Tuesday morning for a mother and father after the vehicle their three children were in was carjacked in east Phoenix.

Phoenix police said the call came out as a carjacking in the area 24th Street and McDowell Road at about 5 a.m.

Police say the car, a white Ford, was stolen from the parking lot of a convenience store. The children -- ages 2, 4 and 6 -- were in the car when it was taken. It's not clear yet if the thief knew the kids were in the car.

A massive search was immediately launched for the children. At about 5:30, a resident in the area of 12th Street and McDowell Road called police saying he found the kids.

The suspect is described as a black male wearing a red hoodie.
