Abducted California boy, 3, found in Mexico


Briant Rodriguez, 3, was taken during a home invasion on May 3 in San Bernardino, California, police say.
A 3-year-old boy who was taken at gunpoint from his California home nearly two weeks ago has been found, authorities said Saturday.

Briant Rodriguez was found Saturday in Mexicali, Mexico, according to the FBI and San Bernardino (California) Sheriff’s office. He has since been reunited with his mother, the agencies said. The boy had been missing since May 3, when two men armed with handguns burst into his family’s home and tied him up — along with his mother and four siblings. The men ransacked the home before leaving with Briant, a small amount of cash and some personal property, San Bernardino sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Beavers said.
