Cole Puffinburger, 6 years old, was allegedly kidnapped Wednesday when two men pretending to be police officers entered the family home and searched the place. They tied up the boy’s mother and her boyfriend and took off with Cole when they apparently couldn’t find any money. Cole is described to have blond hair and blue eyes. He wears eye glasses with a silver rim on them and he is 3’11” tall and weighs about 48 lbs.

An Amber Alert has been issued but was delayed because the police didn’t have a reliable description or vehicle. They now have something new now. They didn’t know earlier anything about a third man involved in the kidnapping but no they say it was indeed a third man involved and all three were Hispanic and they all have accents. Police do think that significant money and drugs are involved in this case.

Police now believe that the boy’s grandfather can lead them to the boy but the grandfather was last seen in Memphis or Southaven, Mississippi. Clemens Fred Tinnemeyer. 51, of Las Vegas is believed to be involved in drug dealing with Mexican nationals and the boy’s kidnapping was a “message” Tinnemeyer has not been seen since May and has been reported as missing since September 11. Police say that he was driving a white Dodge pick-up truck with Mississippi license tag #KAG 251.

Police say that Tinnemeyer possibly could have moved to Memphis months ago. He also owns a 30 ft. motor home, which is a 2006 Valencia with Nevada plates 665 VFN. The motor home is a beige color. Police say Tinnemeyer is not wanted at this time but they would like to talk to him because they think he knows who kidnapped little Cole since he owes them money.

Anyone seeing Tinnemeye’s truck please call your local police immediately or you can call the Las Vegas Police Department at 702-828-3111.

Let’s hope this child is found soon and that he is alive and well. My prayers are with you Cole.
