BOSTON (CBS/AP) — More than five years after a Boston boy named Giovanni disappeared during a weekend visit with his father, charges against the man have been dismissed because of mental illness.
The boy’s father, Ernesto Gonzalez, was charged with parental kidnapping and misleading investigators, and has been in jail ever since. Giovanni has never been found.
On Thursday, a judge granted dismissal of the charges.
