Abducted boy found alive in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS – A 6-year-old boy kidnapped from a Las Vegas home by alleged drug dealers has been found alive in a neighborhood northeast of the Las Vegas Strip, police said.

Cole Puffinburger was recovered at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday after a citizen informed detectives about a child walking the streets, Las Vegas police Officer Jay Rivera said. He said the child appeared to be healthy.

Puffinburger was abducted Wednesday morning by two men posing as police officers.

Authorities arrested Cole's grandfather Clemens Tinnemeyer late Friday in connection with the boy's disappearance.
