Authorities say Cardenas was snatched a from his grandmother's arms by 27-year-old Jose Esteban Rodriguez at a home in Patterson.

Stanislaus County sheriff's divers have begun searching a section of the Delta-Mendota canal near Patterson where a witness reported seeing a vehicle go in. The vehicle fits the description of the car used in the kidnapping.

Sheriff's spokesman Royjindar Singh says the search will resume around 10 a.m. Thursday.
