WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Wichita police say a 6-year-old girl has been reunited with her family after she was taken along with her fathers vehicle and driven into Oklahoma.

Police spokesperson Trevor Macy said Monday that detectives interviewed the girl before the reunion. She was in her father's SUV in a liquor store parking lot near 21st and Amidon when 34-year-old Benjamin Brady allegedly stole it at around 6:49 p.m. The girl's father was in the store when she was taken. 

Macy said officers began checking the area, and information about the crime was released on social media. 

License plate reader technology revealed that the stolen SUV entered the Kansas Turnpike and headed south at about 7:02 p.m. Members of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol located and stopped the vehicle about 22 miles south of the state line at 8 p.m.

The girl was not hurt. Brady was booked into the Kay County Jail and is awaiting extradition back to Wichita.
