CNN is the latest mainstream news media outlet in the United States to cover the apparent kidnapping of Sean "Tony" Creighton in Costa Rica.


Creighton, a 42-year-old U.S. citizen of the United States, has run San Pedro, Costa Rica-based 5Dimes Sports since 1999. 

A lifelong resident of Bridgeport, West Virginia since heading to Costa Rica, Creighton still had established roots in the Mountaineer State.  None of the West Virginia newspapers or networks have covered Creighton's disappearance.

The U.S. businessman was last seen September 24 after his vehicle had been intercepted by armed individuals.  The perpetrators later demanded a near $1 million in ransom from Creighton's wife, who paid it in Bitcoin without first notifying authorities.  Twelve individuals were arrested in Costa Rica and Spain on Friday.  The backyard of one of these individuals is in the process of being dug up in an effort to locate Creighton's body, assuming he is dead.

Good Morning America and ABC News contacted Gambling911.com to advise they would feature a segment on this story Sunday morning

CNN began reporting on the matter late Sunday.
