The trail for kidnapped ‘Nico’ (christened Sebastian) seems to be going cold as reports more and more suggest the mother’s story is ringing true. Today, Correio da Manhã brings news from Barcelona, where the little boy’s father has his home. Neighbours have been telling the paper how the father, Alejandro Sardá, is known to be an alcoholic, with a propensity for violent outbrusts. But right now, it appears he is the one ‘holding’ Nico, while the boy’s mother remains in Tires women’s prison, near Lisbon, having been arrested on an international warrant from Spain… for kidnapping her son. CM says police have been following up leads, but cannot find Sardá, who is understood to have been one of the men who grabbed Nico from his grandmother’s home last weekend.
