A manhunt is underway for a thief who stole a white Mistubishi Pajero from a family's driveway with a sleeping seven-year-old boy inside.
Joseph Eaton woke up in the back of his parents' car at 5.45am on Sunday on Northumberland Road in Forrestfield, west of Perth - 30km away from his home in Morley.
After spending a gruelling ten hours alone in the abandoned car, the brave boy opened the vehicle in the dark and knocked on the door of the nearest house.
