Police focusing on 3 in Las Vegas boy's abduction

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas say they now have three "people of interest" in the abduction of a 6-year-old boy by men posing as police.

Officials said Saturday that they are seeking a Mexican identified as Jesus Gastelum (hay-SOOS' gah-stuh-LOOM'). Police Sgt. Tom Wagner says he is believed to be in Las Vegas or Southern California.

Police also have someone else in custody, but they did not identify that person.

Those two are in addition the boy's grandfather. Clemons Tinnemeyer was arrested Friday in Southern California. Police think he was involved with Mexican drug dealers who wanted to send a "message" with the abduction.

Police say they continue to search for the boy and are focusing on the northeastern Las Vegas Valley.
