Missing: Bryan Dos Santos
FORT MYERS, Fla. – The sketch of the woman who snatched baby Bryan Dos Santos Gomez at knifepoint is plastered everywhere amid the mobile homes at the Tropical Trailer Park.
It is tacked to light poles. Pasted to stop signs. Taped on the windows of neighbors’ cars and trailers in this working class southwest Florida neighborhood.
At the center of it all is Unit 43, a worn trailer where Maria Fatima Ramos Dos Santos, 23, and Jurandir Gomes Costa, 26, were raising their newborn son. Bryan was kidnapped Dec. 1, possibly because his Brazilian parents failed to pay a debt to smugglers who brought them to America two years ago, police said.
The couple have transformed their Ford Explorer into a rolling wanted poster. Its windows are covered with both snapshots of Bryan and the sketch of the suspect.
“We think someone is going to see her and is going to contact us,” Ramos told the Naples Daily News Monday. “I have faith in God that my baby will be back.”
