Police were able to locate the child and the stolen vehicle by tracking the AirPod earbuds the woman had left in the vehicle, which police found abandoned, according to Fox 29 Philadelphia.

The baby was reportedly unharmed and was reunited with its mother. The suspect remains at large.

GPS integration through Apple devices such as AirPods has been been a helpful tool to aid law enforcement in recovering stolen vehicles, according to Autoevolution.
