FOND du LAC, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Police in Fond du Lac are looking for a man who stole a van with an eight-year-old boy in the backseat. The child was dropped off unharmed about a mile south of where the vehicle was stolen. As of late yesterday, police were still looking for both the thief and the vehicle.
Holly Jaschob told WTMJ TV in Milwaukee that she took her kids to the Fond du Lac ShopKo store on Monday night, but her son Eli had to stay in the van because he was not wearing shoes. Jaschob said she left the air conditioning on, and Eli went in the back seat to play a video game on his mom’s cell phone. Apparently, he did not see the man hop into the van and drive off. Jaschob spent about 20 minutes in the store, before she noticed that her vehicle and her son were gone. She said she called her cell number – and the driver got spooked.
Eli told the T-V station that the driver ordered him to get out, so that’s what he did. Police said he called his father after he was dropped off.
