LAST UPDATE: WooHoo, he has been found!

Update III


There is NO SUCH THING as a "National AMBER Alert." This confuses everyone as they think there is one button in Washington to activate the nation. We have been trying to educate the media for years there is no such thing. There are "Multi-State" Activations, but never a "National AMBER Alert." Currently, there is national press coverage of the Nevada AMBER Alert. In this case there are only two states, Nevada, and then at the request of Nevada --California, that have activated.

Amber Alert Nevada Government

LVMPD earlier this morning reported that a 6-year-old boy was kidnapped this morning from a home near Hollywood and Lake Mead during a robbery around 7:15 a.m.

Police say two men, described as Hispanic, took Cole Puffinburger. The boy was wearing a black John Cena sweatshirt, dark jeans and black Vans tennis shoes. He has blond hair and blue eyes and was wearing silver-rimmed glasses. He is 3'11" tall and weighs around 48 pounds.

According to police, the two suspects knocked on the door and indicated they were police however once inside they tied up the boy's mother and her male friend and began looking for money in the home. Police say they took the boy when no money was found.

The reason why there was no AMBER Alert Activation until just before Noon, was LVMPD had no descriptions to give. However, we now have one description of the three Hispanic males who are now suspects, all of whom speak with a Hispanic accent.

One of the suspects have black shoulder length hair slicked back, in his early 30's, 5'7" and 150 pounds. Last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

I hope and pray this child is found safe!

The fact that a bunch of Mexicans came onto American soil and kidnapped a white kid tells me we are now witnessing the Fall of Rome. If we had any leadership in this country these guys wouldn't even consider kidnapping an American kid. The Consequences should be severe for this Mexicans. Hopefully, the cops have the good sense to make sure they never make it to trial but rather are taken care of before then.
