FAMILY and Community Services were notified after a seven-month-old girl was left in a car on Tuesday.

Insp Steel said police found the infant in a baby capsule in the rear of a car, outside a restaurant on Minjungbal Dr, Tweed Heads South.

He said the car was found to be unlocked before being opened up by police.

Insp Steel said the girl's mother then returned from the restaurant, claiming she "wasn't gone for long".
