    Case File 30DFIL

    Sarah Elizabeth Avon
    Missing since July 21, 1981 from Joliet, Will County, Illinois.
    Classification: Non-Family Abduction



    Vital Statistics Date Of Birth: January 6, 1975
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 6 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 4'0; 45 pounds
    <LI>Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Dark blonde/brown hair; brown/green eyes



    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Avon was reported as missing from her family's home in Joliet, Illinois around 9:00 PM on July 21, 1981. Sarah and her sister, younger by a year, joined their friends where Richards Street ends. Sarah walked away after disagreeing with a young companion. She never returned home. She has never been seen since and there are few clues as to her whereabouts. In 1993, a stranger told police that his mentally-deranged nephew, a young boy at the time, may have killed Sarah. And that the nephew's father, who had since died, may have disposed of the body to protect the boy. The cops dug up a vacant lot where Sarah's babysitter had once lived, but nothing was found.

    David R. Collins...

    In 1985 David R. Collins, a pedophile with a long criminal record, who used many aliases, was charged with kidnapping one teenager in California and sexually abusing several others in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Police found 25 photos of young girls in Collins' apartment and published them in a newspaper in hopes that the public could identify the people in them. One picture in his apartment was thought to be of Sarah Avon, a six-year-old who vanished from Illinois in 1981, but that possibility was ruled out.

    At this time, Collins is not believed to have been involved in Sarah's disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
