Someone stole a car with two young boys inside from a Maryland gas station Friday.

The mother of the 2-year-old and 7-month-old children was pumping gas at an Exxon gas station in the 8100 block of Ritchie Highway just after 9 p.m. when a man jumped in her car and drove away, Anne Arundel County police said.

The boys and the car were found unharmed at a Walmart across the street shortly after an Amber Alert was issued.

Police are looking for a tall, white man with a slim build who was wearing a red and green plaid shirt and tan pants.
