The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for a stolen SUV with a one-year-old child inside.

Just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, a silver Volkswagen SUV was stolen from the driveway of a home on the 2600 block of Green Valley Street in Valrico. Tinnley Sage West, 1, was sleeping in the backseat of the vehicle during the incident.

West was last seen wearing a yellow shirt with a white rainbow, tan pants with rainbows, and one sandal. The vehicle is described as a 2018 Volkswagen SUV, silver in color, bearing Florida tag WBR587. Anyone who locates the vehicle or the child is urged to call 911.

A picture of the vehicle (stock image) and photos of Tinnley West can be found below, in addition to home surveillance video of an individual seen walking near the home shortly before the theft occurred. The individual is not a suspect at this time,​.

"We are pleading with the public to share these images and help us safely locate this innocent child as quickly as possible," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "We will continue to actively pursue every angle in this investigation in order to return Baby Tinnley to her family as quickly as possible."
