Sahara's mom told police that she stopped at Giovanni's Pizzeria for food and left her daughter, who was awake, in the backseat of the car with the engine running.
When she came out of the store with her pizza, the car and her child were gone.
Police are gathering information about a male suspect who jumped into the vehicle. The car was last seen traveling down Greene Street.
"So we believe that this car was stolen as an opportunity because the engine was running. The door was unlocked. The individual who stole the car may not have known there was a 6-year-old child," said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.
"So hopefully he abandons the car once he finds out there's a 6-year-old child in it."
The mother and employees at the pizza shop are being interviewed following the tragedy.
Police were also checking homes of other family members across the city in case the child may show up.
"We are checking family that lives throughout the city. We have family that lives in North Philly, other family that lives in West Philly, so we're currently at those locations looking for this child but right now we have not found the child," Small added.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS or by dialing 9-1-1.
