“Um, I need help,”
911 call from a 12 year old boy who's dad was acting a little strange and was in the process of kidnapping him. The boy (unidentified) went on to say that his dad asked him if he wanted to go to a park to throw a football. When they got into the car, his dad put on a Las Vegas Raiders helmet and told his son they were headed to Vegas. His dad then started to start praying in Spanish and was erratic on the road. The 911 dispatcher told the boy when he sees a law enforcement officer on the road to roll down his window and start waiving to them. Ca. Highway Patrol found the car on the highway based on location data from the boy and he was rescued. Nice going CHP!!
See you tomorrow!!
