Search for missing teen intensifies
CALIFORNIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The search for a missing California teen is now intensifying as investigators believe her captor may also be armed with homemade explosives.
Police believe kidnapping and murder suspect James Dimaggio may have rigged his vehicle and himself with improvised explosives.
Dimaggio is suspected of abducting eight-year-old Ethan Anderson and his 16-year-old sister, Hannah.
Authorities also believe he killed their mother in a fire.
A childs body was also found in charred rubble, but investigators do not know if the remains are Ethan.
The father of the two missing children considered Dimaggio a part of his family, a man he met months before Hannah was even born.
"I can't fathom what happened in Jim's head. What happened, he obviously just lost it," said Brett Anderson. "Just let my daughter go. Let her go home, be safe and try and mend things from there."
The manhunt for Dimaggio has now expanded to four states and Mexico and Canada.
