"All I could think about was my child. I didn't think I was ever gonna see him again," said Belvin. "I just knew I had lost my baby."
Belvin frantically called 911 then waited some 8 terrifying minutes before Cornelius Belvin, 7, turned up safe near a Walmart.
Police say the man who took off with the boy didn't initially know he was in the back seat.
The driver's side door was unlocked and the car was running.
"It was fortunate when he picked the child up in the car he wasn't the type of person that would kick the kid out or do harm to the child," said Clarksville Police Spokesperson Jim Knoll.
With the boy's description, authorities found the man they believe is responsible.
Willie Cole now faces kidnapping and theft charges while Sharonda has found herself facing some criticism for leaving the boy in the car in the first place.
"He was very sick. he was throwing up. I did not want to take him out of the car," said Belvin.
The mother says she left the car on to keep the heater running and mistakenly thought the doors were all locked.
It's a mistake she admits could have ended in tragedy.
"That was nobody but god and my brother watching over my son," said Belvin.

Headlining Saturday are Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Aaron Lewis, the former frontman for rock band Staind. The two-day festival concludes Sunday with performances by Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan and The Band Perry.

Visit Baton Rouge executive vice president Renee Areng says Superfest has encouraged people to travel to Baton Rouge on a traditionally sleepy weekend.
