LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas Metro police on Wednesday arrested a woman wanted in Virginia on felony kidnapping charges.
A Las Vegas resident contacted the LVMPD Missing Person’s detail Wednesday morning to report the possible sighting of a child reported nationally as abducted.
The person had viewed a local morning news broadcast showing a missing person flier which had been distributed by the Fairfax Virginia Police Department.
The resident reported to have seen the mother and child on Tuesday night at a local Strip hotel.
The LMVPD Missing Persons Detail initiated an investigation into the report. The initial investigation revealed the mother, Rebecca Sarafin, was wanted on felony kidnapping charges from the State of Virginia in connection with the unlawful taking of her 5-year-old son, Cameron.
With the assistance of Luxor security officers and the Nevada Taxi Authority, investigators were able to track the pair’s movements throughout the Las Vegas area over the previous 24 hours.
The investigation ultimately led to an off-strip apartment complex where the mother and son were taken into custody without incident.
Rebecca Serafin, also known as Rebecca Love, was booked into the Clark County Detention on fugitive charges stemming from the Virginia kidnapping warrant.
Cameron Serafin has been taken into protective custody and awaits the arrival of family members.
