SHARONVILLE, Ohio — A suspect wanted on kidnapping and auto theft charges has turned himself in, the Sharonville Police Department said.

Brian Roseberry turned himself in to Cincinnati Police at around 1:30 p.m. Friday, less than 24 hours after prompting an Amber Alert.

Police said he stole a black 2004 Honda Accord with a 1-year-old inside from a Sunoco gas station at the corner of Kemper and Chester in Sharonville Thursday. The child was later found safe at Good Samaritan Hospital and evaluated at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

After turning himself in, Roseberry was taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Sharonville Police said they received an "outpouring of support and information on the case," but officials are still looking for the car and any additional information the public may have on the case.

"We had great witnesses that were there at the scene. Someone there actually tried to follow him. We don't encourage that, but he was able to provide us with a lot of information and a description of the subject," said Lt. Walter Cordes, Sharonville Police Department.

We asked why the Amber Alert did not include a typical phone notification. Police say while that portion of the alert was being finished, the baby was dropped off.

Sharonville police say the suspect did not know the family and likely did not know a child was in the back of the car.
