Abducted Boys' Possibly Still in Rio Dulce

The FBI has learned that two Westchester brothers who abducted their sons and vanished nine months ago have been in Guatemala and at some point in the Rio Dulce area of Guatemala.

The news has provided the boys' mothers, Zanni Meguerian and Christine Jeanbart, with hope they might one day again see their children.

"It's really reassuring to know that the FBI is closely following up on this," said Meguerian, who hasn't seen her two sons since July. "Hopefully they will continue until my kids are back."

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said agents "believe they spent time in Guatemala and may still be in Central or South America.

The FBI would release no other details. However, family members said that at some point George and John Silah and the children were in the Rio Dulce area, a popular travel destination about a five- to six- hour journey from Guatemala City.

No one knows if they are still there, but federal warrants have been issued for the arrest of the men.
