Marcelle da Rocha Guimaraes and Nicolas Scott Brann have been known to frequent the area of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Guimaraes has dual citizenship in both the United States and Brazil.  



In 2013, Marcelle da Rocha Guimaraes, in violation of United States court order, allegedly took her son Nicolas Scott Brann from the United States and traveled to Brazil. Both mother and son have not returned to the United States.  


In May 2018, Guimaraes' co-conspirators were convicted of international parental kidnapping for their involvement in this matter. On March 23, 2017, an arrest warrant for Guimaraes was issued in the United States District Court, Southern District of Texas. In February 2018, Guimaraes was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for international parental kidnapping and conspiracy.
