50 people in 50 days: Baby kidnapped at knifepoint

Editor's note: Nancy Grace's new show on HLN, "Nancy Grace: America's Missing," is dedicated to finding 50 people in 50 days. As part of the effort, which relies heavily on audience participation, CNN.com's news blog This Just In will feature the stories of the missing.

This is the 34th case, and it was shown Thursday night on HLN.

Bryan Dos Santos Gomes was 28 days old when he was last seen by family in Fort Myers, Florida, on December 1, 2006.

On that day, a woman came to a bus stop and asked two young mothers with their infants for directions. The woman said she was from out of town, lost and was trying to get to a relative’s home to get her baby.

The mothers gave her directions and boarded their bus. When they got off they were greeted by the same woman.

This time she wanted the mothers to show her the way to her destination.  The woman pleaded with them, even offering money. The mothers, cautious at first, eventually agreed to get in the vehicle after seeing a baby seat in the back.

At the end of the drive, the woman pulled a knife and demanded that one of them leave her baby.

    People are so rude and cruel there are some small chance the child survived to adulthood then he may come forth. What a terrible thing people are just crazy and rude.

    I think any attention brought to the missing is great until it becomes a self promotion scam. Nancy Grace is NOT the one to ever head a well intended effort. It shocks me that someone hasn't put her in her place (verbally). Even in her absence the poor girl who has to fill in tries to imitate being rude and obnoxious, she apparently is a sweetheart and doesn't relish the job. I guess CNN knows what it's doing or they could just be guessing too.

    Show a picture of the baby there might still be hope for this child. . With advanced aging and new technology there is still hope. This lady wanted a baby so it may still be alive.

    This focuse on "50" is misleading. It makes it seem as if this sort of thing is rare, while hereinreality, it is an every day commonplace occurance. Millions of children go missing, not 50.

    Phiilip, this isn't about 50 missing children...it's also about missing adults. They are just trying to bring these cases to light in case someone knows something that may lead to finding these people or what happened to them.
