A three-year-old Savannah boy is back home safe with his family, after being kidnapped during a late-night vehicle theft. Shawn Hall was reunited with his family at SCMPD's Central Precinct at Bull and 31st Streets about a half hour after he was taken.

Levi's Call, Georgia's version of the Amber Alert, was issued when Hall's family members called police to report their son was in an SUV which was stolen at the BP gas station in the 3700 block of Ogeechee Road just before 10pm last night.

Relatives of the family which owns the business say they stopped there and left their SUV running with the child inside. Shawn's father, George Hall, says he thought the little boy had gotten out with the others until he saw the SUV speeding out of the gas station.

Hall was dragged about a half mile while trying to rescue his son.

"I said, 'My son's in the third row, my son's in the third row, my child's in the car, stop!'" Hall told us. "And he wouldn't stop. He just took off and tried to slam the door."

A few minutes later, the driver dropped the little boy off at a house in the 100 block of West 40th Street. The man who lives there called police and the little boy was taken to the precinct where his family was notified.

Police are still looking for the red 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with Liberty County tag number ASU 7123. Call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020 if you spot it.
