SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.   A 3-year-old boy was kidnapped by two gunmen who broke into his family's home, tied up his mother and her five children, robbed the house and left with the child, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol issued an Amber Alert late Sunday for 3-year-old Briant Rodriguez, about nine hours after he was taken from his San Bernardino home.

The men, each carrying a handgun, burst through the front door of the home, tied up the family, then ransacked the house and stole money and property, said Cindy Beavers, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The men then left with Briant and told the still-bound mother and four other children not to call police.

One of the children freed himself then untied the rest of the family, Beavers said. Beavers did not know the ages of the rest of the children but said she believed Briant was the youngest.

The mother told investigators she did not know the two Hispanic men, one estimated to be 18 years old, the other 24.

"We have no idea why they took the child," Beavers said. "They were strangers to the whole family."

No witnesses saw the men's vehicle.

Briant is a Hispanic boy 3 feet tall and weighs 40 pounds, with brown eyes and long, curly brown hair. He was wearing a yellow shirt, blue-striped shorts and black sandals when he was taken.

San Bernardino is about 60 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

They just did an amber alert on the tv news here. 9 hours is a long time, I wonder how long the family was tied up? This isn't good, the mom didn't know the men, no one knows what kind of car or where it went?
Why take the boy? I wonder who the father is?

There is a story on the video links to this. This apparently happened yesterday at 2:30 in the afternoon! The neighbor who the mom ran to after being freed, said the men told the mom they were taking the boy to mexico and will kill him? WTH???

Father was at work when this happened.. 

Mom was told that they WOULD take the boy to Mexico and KILL him..
Unfortunately, I am sure there is other intentions..

The boarder guard was put on high alert..Which means very little..mo.
The F.B.I. is now involved which means very little..mo.

"It's horrifying," sheriff's Lt. Rick Ells said. "I don't think I could impress on you how rare a kidnapping like this is."
Not true..Home invasions and kidnappings ? It happens every day in Mexico and is happening more frequently inside the united states.. MANY cases of this last year..
For him to make a statement like that shows pure ignorance..

This is sad.  When I first saw the picture, I thought this was a little girl.  I wonder if the
kidnappers did also.

Thanks for getting this information here for us.

I wonder if it was drug related? There is not much information about this. i don't know why one day after this is being reported. Nothing about this yesterday. He could be anywhere in the world right now. I pray he is ok and will be dropped off somewhere. He is only 3 years old.....

Nancy Grace - CNN Headline News - covered the case as did Greta on FoxNews. 

Mom told police that men were young (18 and 24) Hispanic males, thin, armed with handguns...men that she did not know.  The men bound the family with red duct tape (?) and the 8 year old wiggled out and freed the rest of the family. The men took a cell phone and some money from the Mom's jacket....and the child. 

The men told the Mom that they were taking the child to Mexico and would kill him.

When asked about the father and his job, the local reporter said that she did not know.  The father spent most of the day on the back porch with his head in his hands.  This child is the only biological child of the father.

Marc Klaas says its time to stop waiting for an Amber Alert....this time because there was no description of a car.  A 3 year old needs help immediately.....9 hours is way too long.

Perhaps there will be a transcript of the show later in the morning.  Best I could do while listening to Nancy fuss at her guests.... Rolling Eyes

Makes ya wonder why these people on her show let her get away with speaking to them the way that they do...she is so nasty to most of them imo....

I agree with Marc....why the 9 hr wait? they don't have a car description but they certainly do have the child's description...start with that....

Something isn't right with this case.  I don't know if his family is involved with drugs or what, but something isn't right.  Also, why is Briant's hair so long when his brothers hair is cut short?  Very strange to me the hair:

Officials Continue To Search For Abducted Boy, 3
Authorities Along The U.S.-Mexico Border Have Been Put On AlertSAN

BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) ― 

Authorities along the U.S.-Mexico border have been put on alert for any sign of a 3-year-old San Bernardino boy who was reported snatched at gunpoint from his family's home.

Officials are searching for Briant Rodriguez, who was abducted by two gunmen.

Sheriff's officials say two gunmen burst through the front door of the family's home about 2:30 Sunday afternoon and tied up the boy, his four siblings and their mother.

They then ransacked the house and stole money and other property and left with the boy.

No witnesses saw the men's vehicle.

After about 20 minutes, the men left with Briant, telling the still-bound mother and the other children not to call police, the department said in a statement.

"It's horrifying," sheriff's Lt. Rick Ells said. "I don't think I could impress on you how rare a kidnapping like this is."

One of the children, an 8-year-old boy, wiggled free from his ties and freed the rest of the family, sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers said. Briant is the youngest sibling and the others range in age to 16.

The boy's father was at work at the time and the initial investigation pointed to the kidnappers being strangers to the family, Ells said.

also, is that a gun that the Briant is holding in the above photo? I realize that it is a toy if it is one...

do kids play with toy guns anymore? I really don't see that many kids playing with them nor do I notice them in stores like when my kids were younger...
