incredible video, a frightening kidnapping caught on tape. A man seen running down the street with a small boy in his arms, his older sister and brother following right behind trying to rescue him. ABC's Brandi Hitt joins us now with that story. Good morning, Brandi. Reporter: Good morning, robin. This is every parent's worst fear. Luckily that toddler is safe thanks to his brother and sister but authorizes say it is a race right now to find the suspect they worry may strike again. This morning, a manhunt under way for the suspect in this heart-stopping video, an attempted kidnapping in progress. Watch again. The surveillance footage from a grocery store in this small town of Sprague, Washington, capturing the suspect running off with 22-month-old Owen Wright in his arms. Just seconds later you see the toddler's older sister chasing after him followed close behind by his brother pushing an empty stroller. I can't explain the feeling of anxiety and everything that goes into finding out that, you know, your child is missing. Reporter: Owen's father says his three children were with a baby-sitter Sunday who let them play at a park unsupervised. That's when cops say the man scooped little Owen off out of his stroller and took off. His sister screaming as she gave chase alerting passers-by including two teenage boys who joined the pursuit. I didn't really care. There was a kid's life in danger. I don't consider myself a hero. I just consider myself the person doing the right thing. Reporter: A suspect abandoning the toddler in an empty lot before fleeing. I told that little gir, I said, honey, you did exactly what you needed to do, scream your head off. Reporter: While the mystery kidnapper got away for now the sheriff's office still on the chase. Little Owen now back home safe with his family this morning after a terrifying ordeal that could have been much worse if not for his quick-thinking brother and sister. That was what saved that baby was her screaming and us running. Reporter: Very true. Sprague is a very small town, less tan 500 people and authorities say there's no indication the suspect knew the children or their parents. They believe he may have had a car parked nearby and then used that to get away. Lara. Thank you so much, Brandi.
