A minivan with a 2-year-old boy inside was stolen Tuesday from a Buena Park school, prompting authorities to issue an Amber Alert.

According to Buena Park police, the gray 2017 Toyota Sienna with California license plate 8BTV598 was taken around 9:30 a.m. from outside the Emery School in the 8600 block of Somerset Street.

The boy, Ian Eo, was inside the Sienna when it was taken, police said. Ian was described as 2-feet-11-inches tall, weighing 26 pounds with black hair and eyes. He was wearing a blue T-shirt and blue-and-white shorts.

Police urged the public to be on the lookout for the boy and the van, and to call 911 right away if spotted. The person who took the van was described only as a roughly 40-year-old man.

The boy’s mother was dropping something off at the school when she dashed inside and left the vehicle running, Buena Park police Sgt. Chad Weaver said. She has another child enrolled at the school, Weaver said.
