Baby Bryan Dossantos-Gomes was only 4 weeks old when he went missing 15 years ago.

The newborn was ripped from his mother’s arms in Fort Myers.

WINK News safety & security specialist Rich Kolko said, “Detectives certainly have a lot of challenges when it comes to tracking down this boy”

His mother told police a woman abducted Bryan at knifepoint on Dec. 1, 2006.

Back then, fewer people had surveillance cameras and fewer people used social media.

Kolko said because of all that, it made a detective’s job much harder. “Detectives continue to check every available lead, they can then go back and re-interview witnesses when they can find them. They’ll use those age-enhanced photos.”

Below is what they say Bryan could look like today, he would be 15 years old.

Investigators are working just as hard to bring him home.

“We hear a lot of these just don’t end well over time,” Kolko added, “but every now and then you hear one with a happy ending.”

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said Bryan’s abductor is described as a woman estimated to be approximately 43-45 in age with long straight black hair. She was traveling in a two-door black Ford Explorer SUV. She could be armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information should contact Fort Myers Police Department or the FBI.
