Mr. Wallingford is the wealthy father of little Adelbert Wallingford, who gets kidnapped. The kidnappers deliver a ransom note by homing pigeon. When the pigeon gets loose without the $5,000 ransom, Mr. Wallingford instructs an airplane pilot to chase it, while he and the police follow by car. Some rascals stow away on the plane, whiles others are long for the car ride. When the kidnappers are caught, Mr. Wallingford instructs that the reward money be given to the Gang.
Mr. Wallingford was played by William Gillespie. It is not known who played his wife.
