The mom left her toddler son and his baby sister outside a Long Island supermarket, told her boy to be good and ducked inside to buy a loaf of bread.
Minutes later, when his mom returned, Steven Damman had vanished into thin air.
Cops found a stroller nearby with his baby sister inside. But the nearly 3-year-old boy was gone, along with the bag of jellybeans he was munching on.
