FORT TOTTEN -- A toddler was found safe after spending the night cold and alone in a car that was towed after a traffic stop in Fort Totten.

Cliff Reeves, a tow truck operator, said he was called out to tow a car in the middle of a road about 2 a.m. Sunday.

Reeves said he and police glanced in the car and saw nothing before taking it away. But he said the front seat was reclining far back, blocking sight of the back seat.

About 10 a.m., Reeves' son went out to unhook the car from the wrecker and noticed a small hand in the back seat.

He ran and got Reeves, who opened the car and found the little girl.

Reeves says he called police, brought the girl inside, cleaned her up and gave her food.

Social Services then came and picked up the girl.

Law enforcement authorities confirmed the incident but were unable to give more details.
