Police say a 21-year-old soldier from Hunter Army Airfield was found dead on Savannah's Hutchinson Island, not long before his 1-year-old child was discovered unharmed in an abandoned car seat several miles away.

Police realized that 21-year-old Necco McCrawl's car and child were missing quickly after his body was found about 3:30 p.m. Thursday on a dirt road on the Savannah River island. Almost as soon as the search began, the child was found sitting in the car seat in Garden City and turned over to the mother.

On Friday, authorities were still searching for McCrawl's 2002 Cadillac Deville. They do not believe it was a random carjacking, but that McCrawl knew the killer.
