HOUSTON, TX – A couple walked into a gas station in Houston and it turned into a nightmare situation.

Deputies say around midnight 21-year-old Kimberly Cook and her boyfriend, 29-year-old Anthony Blue left their 16-month old asleep in a running, unlocked car in the parking lot.

When they came back out, the car and the baby inside were gone.

20 miles away, a ranger was closing up a park, when he spotted what he thought was an animal -- but it was the infant, shivering in its onesie.

The child was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Not long after, deputies spotted the vehicle. After a short chase, they arrested two suspects for kidnapping and auto theft.

Cook and Blue have been charged with child endangerment.
