WIXSHIP WESTBtJRY, N.V. (UP)—Police issued a nationwide alai'm Monday night asking druggists to watch, the persons trying- to buy a special vitamin required for the kidnaped Weinberger baby. The move appeared 1o be a last- ditch attempt to get fresh clues in the kidnaping- of one-month-olrt Peter Weinberger from the patio of his parents' Long 1 Island home last .Inly 4. Police, apparently up ag-ainst a. dead end, wore awaitinp; the official entry of the FBI into the case Wednesday. The alarm was a Jong- shot, since (here appeared to be littu- likelihood the kidnapper would knowingly give himself, away by asking- for the vitamin. Authorities asked dnijfgisfr to Question closely anyone asking for a vitamrn preparation called Dozex B-12. The preparation was pi-e- scribed for the Weinberger baby before he was abducted. Stamford, Conn., police reported Sunday nignt thai a man Inert to buy Do7cx in a Stamford drugstore but: left, after a. clerk told him. there was none on hanci. The clerk didn't realize the possible significance until the .man had Teft and police were' unable to trace the would be purchaser.
