Age: 23 months -- Height: 2'3" -- Weight: 26 lbs -- Hair Color: Black -- Eye Color: Brown
Gebar was last seen in University City, Missouri on March 22, 2010. He lived with his mother, Yasmin Rodriguez, and father, Gebar Byrd Sr. His parents had been together for about six years, but never married. According to Gebar Sr., Yasmin took Gebar and left after an argument. He claimed she had done the same thing a year before and stayed with relatives for a month, so he was not concerned. Yasmin's relatives reported Yasmin and Gebar Jr. missing on March 28.
Yasmin's body was found in the Mississippi River in St. Louis, Missouri on April 9. Authorities stated there were no obvious signs of trauma, and the body had been there for some time. In late May, Gebar Sr. was charged with murdering her and Gebar Jr. Investigators believe he pushed Yasmin into the river while she was holding Gebar Jr., and they both drowned. They stated that he confessed.
Gebar Sr. is awaiting trial. Gebar Jr's body has never been found.
