The boy, Brayden Huepenbecker, had been left in the van, which had been left running at the gas station at 21st Street and Shadeland Avenue, as his father, Matt Shinbur went into the station.Shinbur and the boy's mother, April Huepenbecker, feared the worst as the search began."We don't care about the van. We don't care about anything in the van except for our son," Huepenbecker said. "He's my only son. I need him. He's my life. He's everything."Off-duty firefighters and police officers from several departments came in on their day off to help look for the child.An Indianapolis police homicide detective found the boy buckled in his car seat inside the van, which had its flashers on."We're relieved that we found the van. We're relieved we found the child," said Indianapolis Police Chief Mike Spears. "I'm very, very proud of the work of the literally hundreds of officers who dropped everything to come in on their own time and help us with this search."When Brayden was found, he was crying, but was otherwise fine. It was a happy ending for the young parents, who grasped their son in a tearful reunion.
