      A boy kidnapped by his father six years ago in North Carolina is on his way home after being returned from Mexico in Brownsville.

      FBI agents confirmed that 8-year-old Edwin Gonzales will be reunited with his mother six after being kidnapped.

      Investigators said the boy's father Jorge Sanchez-Aguilera took the boy from North Carolina to Mexico.

      Investigators said Edwin is now safely back in the United States and is currently in Brownsville, Texas.

      Authorities arrested Sanchez-Aguilera in 2010 while a jury in Chatham County, North Carolina recently convicted him on three counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of second-degree kidnapping and one count of first-degree burglary.

      The child was ordered to be returned to his Mother prior to Aguilera TMs sentencing.

      Investigators are no releasing any additional details at this time.
