Vigils held for boy in Brazil

June 16, 2009 9:25:09 PM PDT
At sunset in Red Bank, New Jersey, a moving vigil was held for the little boy at the center of an international custody fight. The vigil was one of several held around the country for nine-year-old Sean Goldman.

He remains in Brazil and his father, David Goldman, remains locked in a legal battle to bring him home.

Five years ago, Sean's mother took him to Brazil on a vacation and against David's wishes, and never returned.

She died in childbirth nearly a year ago, leaving Sean in the custody of his Brazilian step-father. The case exploded into a high profile dispute.

There have been several legal setbacks in Brazil that have delayed and even raised doubts about the eventual reunion of a father and his son.

David Goldman did not attend the vigil, but his fight is something this community has taken to heart.

David Goldman's supporters say this vigil serves as a reminder that another Father's day is approaching and Sean Goldman still hasn't come home to his Dad.
