UPDATE I: CLAY MOORE FOUND SAFE
UPDATE II: Arrest Warrent Issued for Vincente Ignacio Beltran Marino
(CBS4) Florida Police are closing in on a central Florida man suspected of abducting a Manatee County teen in a failed ‘kidnapping for ransom’ scheme.
At a news conference Sunday morning, Sheriff Charlie Wells said an arrest warrant has been issued for 22-year old Vicente Ignacio Beltran Moreno for Friday’s armed abduction of 13-year old Clay Moore from a crowded bus stop on Friday.
Moore, who was duct taped to a tree and left in a wooded area about 20 miles away from where he was taken, managed to free himself with a safety pin. He then walked until he found a farm worker with a cell phone. He called his mother at about 1-30 p-m. Wells says he boy wasn’t hurt except for scratches and scrapes.
“This was an absolute kidnapping for ransom,” Wells said, “The person wanted money in exchange for Clay Moore.”
