LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman says
a Boston kidnapping suspect who went by the name ``Clark
Rockefeller'' is actually a German man wanted for questioning in
the 1985 disappearance of a San Marino couple.

Steve Whitmore told The Associated Press on Monday that investigators ``positively identified'' Christian Gerhartsreiter as
the man being held in Boston and wanted for questioning in the
disappearance of Jonathan and Linda Sohus.

Whitmore says Gerhartsreiter went by the name ``Christopher
Chichester'' when he lived in the Sohus' guesthouse at the time
they went missing.

He had been going by the name ``Clark Rockefeller'' when
authorities say he abducted his daughter in Boston on July 27. He
was arrested in Baltimore Aug. 2.
