Kidnapped boy found safe in Las Vegas
- A 6-year-old boy abducted Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been found safe, the Las Vegas police department announced early Sunday.
Cole Puffinburger was found walking alone in east Las Vegas, police say.
"Cole (Puffinburger) has been found, he is safe and in our custody," Capt. Vince Cannito told reporters in an early morning news conference.
Cannito said that while detectives were canvassing Las Vegas neighborhoods Saturday night with flyers about the boy's abduction, they got a report that a young boy who matched Cole's description was seen walking alone on a sidewalk on the city's east side.
"Detectives rushed there, found the boy and confirmed it was Cole," Cannito said.
"It's just a blessing that this child has been found and he's in extremely good condition," the captain added.
Cole's father, Robert Puffinburger, said the emotion he felt after being informed that his son was safe was "indescribable."
