    Tobias Dustin Summers, 30, is wanted in connection with the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

    A parolee suspected of kidnapping a 10-year-old Northridge girl was recorded on surveillance video entering Mexico, the Los Angeles Police Department chief said Friday.

    A border security camera showed Tobias Summers, 30, crossing a footbridge into Tecate, Mexico, about 30 miles east of Tijuana, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said.
