CHICAGO -- The story of a doggie daycare van hijacked still has a happy ending, with all seven dogs found safe. But security camera footage recently by police released shows a twist in the story.

A van containing seven dogs from a pet day care center was found Thursday afternoon. Wednesday night the driver of the van reported he was hijacked at gun point at the intersection of Chicago, Ogden and Milwaukee in the River West neighborhood.

But the newly released video shows the van was left unlocked and running outside Urban Out Sitters at 3241 N Dayton St. The two suspects approached the van and drove off.

The abandoned van was found in the 800 block of W Superior at about 11 a.m. Thursday.

The dogs were unharmed and reunited with their owners.

No one is in custody at this time and police continue to investigate.
