Authorities investigating the abduction of a 3-year-old from his family home in San Bernardino got help from the community Saturday in their ongoing search for Briant Rodriguez.

Members of the Citizen On Patrol Unites distributed some 5,000 fliers that contained photos of the suspects, the suspects' vehicle and Rodriguez, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said in a new posting on their Web site.

"The investigation continues around the clock, however, Briant's location and the identification of the suspects remain unknown," the post read.

Police on Thursday released a photo of the two suspects.

The blurry image was taken from surveillance camera footage recorded at a home-improvement store two days before Sunday's abduction of Briant Rodriguez, authorities said.

The men bought tape that was used to tie up Rodriguez and other members of his family, San Bernardino County Sheriff Rod Hoops said at a news conference.

The suspects drove away from the store in a dark green Ford Bronco, also captured on video.

Those images generated more than 350 calls to police — triple the number that had come in days before, the San Bernardino Sun reported.

Authorities investigating the weekend abduction of a 3-year-old from his family home in San Bernardino released a photo Thursday of two suspects and pleaded for the child's safe return.

The blurry image was taken from surveillance camera footage recorded at a home-improvement store two days before Sunday's abduction of Briant Rodriguez, authorities said.

The men bought tape that was used to tie up Rodriguez and other members of his family, San Bernardino County Sheriff Rod Hoops said at a news conference.

The suspects drove away from the store in a dark green Ford Bronco, also captured on video.

A surveillance camera outside a different store captured the same vehicle leaving the boy's neighborhood about 3 minutes before the boy's mother Maria Rosalina Millan called police to report the abduction, Hoops said.

Investigators said they were looking at several theories, including that the Spanish-speaking kidnappers were from Mexico and may have had ties to organized crime there. No ransom has been demanded.

Border authorities have been put on alert.

The family lives in a modest, single-story home in a lower-income area abutting the city of San Bernardino, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

The boy's father was at work at the time and the initial investigation pointed to the kidnappers being strangers to the family, authorities said.
