Couple accused of kidnapping grandson released from jail

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A couple arrested for kidnpping their grandson were released from jail Friday.

Dr. Chris Brann said his ex-wife took his son, Nico, to Brazil when he was 3 years old, and never returned.

Brann's ex-wife's parents, Carlos and Jemima Guimaraes, were arrested for their alleged part in the kidnapping.

In October 2016, Brann's sentimental journal for his son was stolen.

Brann's ex-wife is also facing charges, but has not been arrested.
