An urgent yacht has been launched to find a two-year-old girl who was in her father's Audi when it was stolen in East London earlier this afternoon. The nameless father had met a stranger in Newham to sell him the vehicle, but the man jumped into the car and drove away. Police have said that the car, a black Audi A5, was later abandoned without the toddler inside Hathaway Crescent.
