Sketch of Suspect

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Local, state and federal authorities are sifting through more than 50 leads in their search for a 1-month-old baby Fort Myers police said was abducted at knifepoint Friday afternoon.

Police Chief Hilton Daniels said Bryan Dos Santos Gomes and his mother, Maria Dossantos, were kidnapped Friday by a woman driving a black SUV.

Dos Santos said she and her friend were waiting at a bus stop in Fort Myers when the woman asked them for directions. She said the kidnapper told them she needed to pick up her own baby.
"She said her own baby was a day old when someone took the baby from her," Dos Santos said.

Police said Dossantos got into the woman's car with her baby to give the woman directions.

According to authorities, Dossantos was released south of Fort Myers a short time later, but the abductor kept the baby.

Police describe the vehicle as a dark-colored, two-door Chevy Blazer or Ford Explorer with peeling window tint. Investigators said the abductor may be headed toward Miami.

An Amber Alert has been issued for the baby boy. Police said the abductor should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the child is asked to call the Fort Myers Police Department at 239-338-2120 or 911.
