A family reported their car was missing Friday after someone broke into their garage and home.

Sgt. Nikki Woodrow, of the Wichita Police Department, said officers responded to a call about the burglary at around 1:30 a.m. on Friday. She said a 37-year-old man had called 911 to report the crime at his home on the 2500 block of North Crestline.

The man told police he was locking doors to his home for the night around 1:30 a.m. when he opened the door to his garage and saw the garage door was up and his car was missing. She said the man then realized his keys and wallet were missing from inside the home as well, but that the family did not notice the break-in when it occurred.

Woodrow said a 30-year-old woman and two boys, ages 3 and 1, were also inside the home at the time. Woodrow said the police report did not include a time frame for the burglary or information about when the car was last driven.

The missing car is a silver 2013 Chevy Captiva with Kansas tags 129 EVX. Woodrow said the car has black-painted factory rims.

Anyone with information should call 911 or investigations at 316-268-4407. People who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.

If spotted, Woodrow advised the public not to approach the car or driver and instead call 911.
