We can only hope and pray for this child's safe return. Those with children know that awful feeling when something bad has happened to your child, and in the case of missing Cole Puffinburger this has certainly got to be the parents worst nightmare.

Let's hope and pray that one of our tips can help bring Cole home. My sympathies go out to the family of Cole - I have 2 sons that looked alot like Cole when they were small, and I can't imagine the agony they are going through right now.

And to the kidnappers of Cole Puffinburger: this innocent child has nothing to do with the family , drugs or whatever else may have happened. Have mercy and let Cole go - he in only an innocent child. Think of your own families and children, and let Cole go. Drop him off at a hospital or somewhere safe.
