FORT WRIGHT, Ky. (AP) - A 4-year-old northern Kentucky girl went for an unexpected ride after her mother's sport utility vehicle was stolen with her in it from outside a convenience store.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported that the girl and the SUV were reporting missing for about a half hour from a Speedway in Fort Wright.

Both the girl and vehicle were found in the parking lot of a Kroger in Fort Mitchell at around 2 a.m. EDT Thursday. The girl was uninjured.

Police arrested two 17-year-olds from Covington and charged them with felony theft and kidnapping.

Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders says it is unlikely the girl's mother will be charged.

Fort Wright Police Sgt. Michael Knight said the girl slept through the ordeal and was reunited with her the parents.
