BROWNSVILLE - An 8-year-old boy will soon be reunited with his mother after he was kidnapped by his father six years ago.
According to the FBI, Jorge Sanchez-Aguilera kidnapped his son from North Carolina and took him to Mexico in 2006. Sanchez-Aguilera was convicted in a jury trial of kidnapping and burglary in 2010. Eight-year-old Edwin Gonzales is now safely back in the United States and currently in Brownsville.
The FBI says reuniting the family took years of cooperation and coordination between several federal, state and local agencies.
No other details have been released.
