NEWARK - Two children have been safely reunited with their parents after they were carjacked in Newark.

A relative says their mother's SUV was carjacked near Springfield Avenue and South 17th Street when she went to close her driveway gates. The relative says that in the time it took her to close the gate, a vehicle pulled up to her SUV and a suspect took her car.

A 3-year-old and an 11-month-old were in the back seat of the stolen SUV. They have since been examined by EMTs.

A K-9 unit searched the area but the suspects remain at large. It was not immediately known how the children were returned.
