    TX - Michael Lee Montelongo, 5, San Benito, 12 July 1977

    Montelongo was last seen playing outside of his Texas home on July 12, 1977. Montelongo's mother called police officers on that afternoon to report that her son had disappeared.
    Investigators and emergency personnel were immediately dispatched to search the area. Moments later a San Benito resident reported that he had seen the small boy walking down Alamo Street; however, nothing was found after officers combed the area. Neighbors were interviewed and leads were followed, but no information revealed Montelongo's whereabouts.
    Police officers quickly learned that Montelongo liked to play near a drainage ditch close to his home. At the time of his disappearance, the water level at the ditch was high, raising the possibility that the current swept him away. Another possiblity is that he wandered away and someone picked him up.
    Montelongo had a brother who died of sudden infant death syndrome one year before Montelongo's disappearance. There might have been another brother who died only months after Montelongo was reported missing. Montelongo's mother left during the investigation and wasnít heard of again

    Charley Project has new information here:

    It would be interesting to also find out more detailed circumstances of Michael's brothers who the article says one "may have died" and the other one died of SIDS. It is unknown but if there were different men involved in Michael's Mother's life at various times, she and her children may have suffered possible abusive relationships? Could there have been patterns of neglect and abuse over the years? A cover up in the community, where someone perhaps even within the family knows what happened to little Michael?

    Actually she did have a number of different men in her life. The fact that a little brother died (allegedly) of SIDS before Michael's mysterious disappearance, and that another died afterward make this more than just a bunch of BIG coincidences.

    Add to that the mother moving out of state during the investigation and changing her name and one has to wonder why the police have not been able to solve this one.

    The fact that she "passed" a lie detector test might not indicate that she is innocent, but rather that she could't tell the truth if she stepped in it.
