LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Investigators in Las Vegas say they're looking for the grandfather of a kidnapped 6-year-old boy with the hope he can lead them to the child.
The boy, Cole Puffinburger, was abducted from a Las Vegas home by men posing as police officers.
Police Capt. Vincent Cannito said Friday that 51-year-old Clemens Fred Tinnemeyer of Las Vegas was a person of interest in the nationwide search for Cole.
Cannito says authorities think the grandfather was involved in drug dealing with Mexican nationals, and the boy's kidnapping was a "message."
Tinnemeyer was last seen in May and reported missing Sept. 11.
A nationwide Amber Alert remains in effect after two Hispanic men tied up Cole's mother and her boyfriend at their house Wednesday and abducted him.
