Amber alert in Southern California for Las Vegas child

SAN DIEGO – Law enforcement officers in a wide swath of Southern California kept an eye out Thursday for a 6-year-old boy kidnapped during an abortive home invasion robbery in Las Vegas.

An amber alert – though one that did not immediately involve the activation of freeway signs – was issued first in Las Vegas for Southern Nevada Wednesday, then by the California Highway Patrol for Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, Imperial and San Bernardino counties.

Cole Mason Puffinburger was abducted from his home at Hollywood and Lake Mead boulevards in Las Vegas around 7 a.m. Wednesday by three men, two of whom posed as police officers, according to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball said his agency was made aware of the boy's disappearance through a notification from the Emergency Notification and Tactical Alert Center in Sacramento.

He said the customary freeway signs asking motorists to be on the lookout for a specific vehicle were not immediately activated because no description of the vehicle in which the kidnappers fled was immediately available.

Cole is white, 4 feet tall, weighing 48 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt with the word “Cena” on it. He also had on a black zip-up sweat jacket decorated with skull images, along with dark blue jeans and black Vans tennis shoes. Cole wears silver-rimmed glasses, police said.

A picture on the Las Vegas police Web site shows a smiling bespectacled boy with short, spiky blond hair.

Police said two of the kidnappers knocked on the door of the residence and identified themselves as police officers.

Once inside, the armed pair tied up the boy's mother and her boyfriend, searched for money throughout the residence and fled with the boy after failing to find any, according to Las Vegas police. The role of the third suspect was not immediately spelled out.

The three abductors were described as Latinos who spoke accented English. One was in his early 30s, 5 feet 7, about 150 pounds, with black, slicked-back shoulder-length hair, last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans, police said.

This happened because of our third world invaders encouraged to come here by our "leaders" to dilute the white race and then destroy us. Kidnapping is a common crime in crapsexico, so they bring their "culture" here. How lovely, we truly are diverse.
