Fort Myers Police Following Leads in Baby Abduction

Police in Florida say there's someone they want to talk to, in connection with the abduction of a baby boy from a Brazilian couple two weeks ago.

Authorities say the man they're looking for is "Valter Coehlo," a "known enforcer in a human smuggling ring.”

Officials are not calling him a suspect, but they say he may know something about the case.

The baby, Bryan Santos Gomes, was taken from his mother at knifepoint by a woman in an SUV who gave them a ride.

Investigators say the baby might have been taken because his parents failed to pay human smugglers.
