Authorities sought help Thursday from anyone who may have seen the car in which 26-year-old Kevin Wynn was kidnaped Monday night. Wynn, daughter of gambling mogul Stephen A. Wynn, was abducted by two masked men who were waiting in her home when she arrived late Monday night. She was found unharmed two hours later, bound and gagged, in her black 1991 Audi in the parking lot of McCarran International Airport.

When kidnapers mugged Kevin Wynn and demanded $2.5 million in ransom for her safe return, they were messing with perhaps the most powerful person in this town. Casino developer Stephen A. Wynn won his daughter's return not by calling authorities, but by paying $1.45 million in hundred-dollar bills--all that he could quickly get his hands on, he said. His handling of the kidnaping accurately suggests that Wynn is frustrated by convention, especially if he has the money to sidestep it.

Further, Drexel Burnham has no guarantee that potential damages will be covered by the $350 million that it is putting into a settlement pot under the plea bargain with the Justice Department, legal experts said Friday.

Management of Las Vegas' Golden Nugget hotel/casino has agreed to end its contract with Frank Sinatra, who will begin performing for Bally-group casinos. "With the sale of our Atlantic City facility a few months ago, the Golden Nugget no longer had the Eastern location in which to present Mr. Sinatra's artistry," said Stephen A. Wynn, chairman of board for Golden Nugget. Bally bought the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City earlier this year.

Christie's launched New York's fall marathon of big-ticket art auctions Tuesday night with a $117-million sale of Impressionist and modern art that fetched record prices for works by Amedeo Modigliani, Fernand Leger and Henry Moore. Eight of the 43 works offered were not sold, but auctioneer Christopher Burge said the sale was "among the best I've seen in years," indicating that "the market is strong both in terms of vendors and the buying audience."
