SHARE PAIR FREES KIN OF CASINO CHIEF FOR $1.5 MILLION

The daughter of casino executive Steve Wynn was bound and held by two kidnappers in her own car for several hours before being freed for a $1.5 million ransom, authorities said.

Kevin Wynn, 26, was shaken but otherwise unharmed Tuesday when she was found tied up on the floor of her sports car at McCarran International Airport, four miles from her home.No immediate arrests were made.

"We have a number of leads we're checking," FBI spokesman Burke Smith said.

The kidnappers were waiting for her at her garage when she came home Monday night. They threw her in her car and sped away, said a law enforcement source speaking on condition of anonymity.

The kidnappers contacted Wynn, chairman of Mirage Resorts, and he paid the $1.5 million at an undisclosed location, the source said.
