UPDATE I: Authorities release pictures of suspects in 3 year old Briant Rodriguez’ abduction

Police in San Bernardino, California, released pictures of two suspects in the abduction of a 3-year-old boy who was taken at gunpoint from his home last weekend.

Investigators traced samples of the tape used to tie up the family to a home improvement store where they believe the suspects purchased the tape the Friday before the abduction.

The unidentified store’s surveillance camera captured two men who matched the description of the kidnappers given by Briant’s mother, purchasing tape believed to have been used in the abduction, Beavers said.

Both suspected kidnappers of 3 year old Briant Rodrigue are Hispanic males. One is 5-feet, 5 inches tall, between the ages of 18 and 20 with a thin build, unknown hair and eye color, last seen wearing a black baseball hat, blue jeans and green T-shirt.

UPDATE II: Google Search Engine Has Joined the Hunt

Google has entered the search as well. When the user types in “Briant Rodriguez,” a “missing poster” will pop up on the right-hand side of the page with information regarding the missing child. Bob DeLeo, executive director at Google, said, “This is very, very serious. This is beyond an abduction. The more images you have out there, the more likely it is that the perpetrators will be turned in and the child will be found.”

The FBI has moved the Briant Rodriguez case to the top of their Facebook page.

UPDATE III: Investigators likely found Briant Rodriguez alive in Mexico

A 3-year-old San Bernardino boy who was kidnapped by armed men two weeks ago has likely been found in Mexico, officials said.
Investigators received a call on Friday from officials in Mexicali that a child matching Briant Rodriguez’s description had been dropped off at a building there. FBI agents, sheriff’s detectives and the boy’s mother, Rosana Millan, immediately flew to Mexicali.

Although Mexican officials have not yet allowed them to see the boy, investigators said they believe it is him.

“It sounds very positive,” said sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Beavers.
