Florida authorities are searching for a 2-year-old boy after his mother said a stranger offered them a ride, knocked her unconscious and left her in the woods.

Largo police say the woman was walking with her son Saturday night when a man in a white Toyota Camry offered them a ride.

Once inside the car, the man punched her in the face and she lost consciousness.

The woman told investigators she regained consciousness early Sunday morning in a wooded area and the man and her son were gone.

She described the man as black, about 25 years old with dreadlocks and gold teeth.
