FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - The father of a Florida boy abducted at knifepoint in 2006 has returned to his family. Jurandir Gomes Costa was facing deportation to Brazil after being arrested in November for driving without a license.

According to the Naples Daily News, he has been released from a Broward County holding center on an order of supervision.

Costa's son, Bryan Dos Santos, was 29 days old when he was kidnapped from his mother's vehicle in Fort Myers.

He was never found, and police now say the abduction appears to be a random act. Jurandir Gomes Costa's wife had asked authorities to allow her husband to remain in the U.S. until their son is found.
