WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Officials say U.S. Sen. Chris Coons' family SUV was stolen from his Delaware home.

Wilmington police spokeswoman Sgt. Andrea Janvier tells The Associated Press in an email that the black Ford Explorer with at least one Coons sticker on the back was taken Thursday morning after it was left running with the keys in the ignition.

Police didn't give any other details about the incident or why the car was left running.

Coons spokesman Sean Coit tells The AP that the senator and his family are OK. He says Coons had already left for the day when the theft took place.

Janvier says details were broadcast to all units shortly after the incident and then entered into a state system that alerts all jurisdictions in the area.
