FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - The father of a Florida boy abducted at knifepoint in 2006 is set for deportation to Brazil after being arrested for driving without a license.
Maria De Fatima Ramos Dos Santos is asking authorities to allow her husband to remain in the U.S. until their son is found. Bryan Dos Santos was 29-days-old when he was kidnapped from his mother's vehicle in Fort Myers. Police now say the abduction appears to be a random act. The boy was never found.
Ramos says if her husband is deported, she'll have to leave the country, too. Jurandir Gomes Costa was arrested Nov. 29 after being stopped for speeding. Federal immigration authorities took him into custody Dec. 10.
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman says he's being held "like anyone would be on immigration violation."
