Mr. Schiff: Hi. This is Wanted by the FBI, from the FBI. Two men wanted for a May 3rd kidnapping in California.

Mr. Roberts: “Liberato Cardenas-Vega, he’s 30-years-old; and Israel Ledesma Moreno, he’s 27-years-old.”

Mr. Schiff: That’s Special Agent Don Roberts at the FBI’s Los Angeles Office. He says these two allegedly broke into a San Bernardino home and kidnapped a young boy.

Mr. Roberts: “At the conclusion of the home-invasion robbery, they grabbed little 3-year-old Briant Rodriguez, took him from the home saying they were going to take him to Mexico and kill him.”

Mr. Schiff: Roberts says it’s not known why this happened.

Mr. Roberts: “We really don’t know what their intent was upon entering and we don’t know whether they knew who exactly was in the house when they broke in.”

Mr. Schiff: Roberts says good police work eventually led to these two subjects.

Mr. Roberts: “Some physical evidence left behind at the home led to the identification.”

Mr. Schiff: You can help find these guys. Wanted flyers are up at fbi.gov. That’s Wanted by the FBI for this week. I’m Neal Schiff of the Bureau’s Office of Public Affairs.
