Kidnapped Las Vegas Boy Found

The Las Vegas police department announced Sunday that a 6-year-old boy, who had been abducted Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been found safe, CNN reported.

While CNN simply reported that the boy, Cole Puffinburger was found wandering on a sidewalk on the city's east side, the AP elaborated on the story with the information that he was found after he approached a bus driver and asked for a ride home.

"I'm just glad he's safe," Robert Puffinburger, Cole's father, said at a news conference. "I can't wait to see him!"

Cole was kidnapped Wednesday. Three armed men (two according to the AP report) tied up his mother and her fiance and rifled through the home, taking the boy after finding no money, police said.

Police say the men who kidnapped Cole were drug dealers trying to send a message to Cole's grandfather, Clemons F. Tinnemeyer.
