ATLANTA - Atlanta police say a hearse with a body inside was stolen outside a hospital. Both were recovered a short time later.

Atlanta police Officer Ralph Woolfolk said authorities believe the hearse was taken Sunday morning outside Grady Memorial Hospital in the city's downtown area. WSB-TV reports that it appears the driver drove through the gates of the hospital morgue.

Woolfolk tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the suspect or suspects abandoned the hearse a few blocks from Grady, then stole a gold Ford Explorer and drove off in that vehicle.

Police say they recovered the hearse on Auburn Avenue. CBS 46 reports that the body was also recovered.

Police were still searching for suspects Sunday afternoon.
