A six-year-old boy kidnapped from a Las Vegas home by alleged drug dealers has been found alive in Las Vegas. Cole Puffinburger was found on Saturday after a member of the public told detectives a child was walking the streets, Las Vegas police officer Jay Rivera said. He said the child appeared to be healthy. Cole was abducted on Wednesday morning by two men posing as police officers. The boy's grandfather, Clemens Tinnemeyer, was arrested on Friday in connection with Cole's disappearance. Police believe the abductors were Mexican drug dealers and that the kidnapping at gunpoint was a "message" to Tinnemeyer, who they said may have stolen millions of dollars from the dealers.

He was all over the news in the West. In fact, they credit the mass media with the kidnappers getting nervous and releasing him.

he wasn’t plastered all over the news because in Caylee’s case, she was missing for over a month.
