Florida has a high number of missing children cases, when I checked the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) website today there were 274 children listed as missing, abducted, or endangered runaway. Including Carolyn Denise Brown and her three children Barry, Brandon, and Sheketah, disappeared from Port Saint Lucie Florida in 1985. According to the NCMEC poster for Barry Brown, “the children and their mother were last seen at home on July 16, 1985.” Foul play is suspected due to the circumstances surrounding their disappearance.
Bryan Dossantos-Gomes was born November 3, 2006. He was kidnapped December 1, 2006 at the age of three weeks. He is no longer an infant and would be six years old and possibly in kindergarten or first grade. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), the woman who took Bryan “is a heavy set White/Hispanic female, approximately 28-30 years old, with long straight black hair, and last seen wearing blue jeans and a black blouse.”
She was accompanied by a Hispanic male driving a two-door black Ford Explorer.” The male companion is believed to be armed and dangerous and the FBI urges anyone who may recognize Bryan use extreme caution. The FBI is offering a reward for information leading to the recovery of Bryan Dos Santos-Gomez.
Trenton J Duckett’s NCMEC poster shows the boy age-progressed to age seven, and that “Trenton is Biracial. He is Asian and White. Trenton has a small mark over his left eye. He was last seen wearing denim shorts and a green and blue striped shirt.” At the America’s Most Wanted (AMW) website, “cops say someone took two year-old Trenton Duckett from his bedroom on August 27, 2006. Trenton’s mother drove a silver 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse.”
Authorities believe that she is somehow responsible for her son’s disappearance. Unfortunately, Melinda Duckett committed suicide after she was interviewed by Nancy Grace. Joshua Duckett is not a suspect in his son’s disappearance.
Please visit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) website for more information on the children who are missing from the state of Florida. Missing and abducted children can be anywhere. If you see a child who is missing please call 911 immediately. Children depend on adults to keep them safe and to help them find their way back home.
