Jerusalem (AP) The start of an Israeli family's vacation sounds like the movie “Home Alone.”

Israeli airport police say a couple and their five children were late for a flight to Paris and were in a mad dash for the gate. They remembered their duty-free shopping and their 18 suitcases, but were one child short after take-off.

A three-year-old girl was found in the terminal at Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv, crying for her mother. According to Israeli media, the parents didn't realize the girl was missing until they were told, in the air, that she'd been found.

An airline staffer took the child to paris on the next flight
