Three-Year-Old Boy Kidnapped from His San Bernardino Home

Posted: Updated:
Authorities are asking Southern California residents to be on the lookout for a 3-year-old boy kidnapped from his San Bernardino home.

No official Amber Alert was immediately issued because no information was available on what kind of vehicle the kidnappers may be driving, but authorities are asking the public to keep an eye out for the boy and the two men who took him, said California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball.

Briant Rodriguez of San Bernardino was seized by two armed men who entered his home about 2:30 p.m. Sunday and tied up his family, according to the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department.

The gunmen ransacked the home, took cash and property, then left with the boy and warned the family not to call the police, said sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers.

She said the motive for the kidnapping was not immediately clear.

The kidnappers were described as thin, light-skinned Hispanic men. One is believed to be about 18, 5 feet 8, wearing blue jeans, a green T-shirt and a black baseball cap. The other is believed to be about 24, 5 feet 10, and wearing a black shirt, black pants and boots, and a white bandanna.

Briant was described as 3 feet tall, about 40 pounds, wearing a yellow shirt with blue sleeves, blue striped shorts and sandals.

It was unclear if the men fled in a vehicle.

Anyone with information about the boy's whereabouts should contact authorities, including the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department at (909) 387-3589.
