    CO - Christopher Enoch Abeyta, 7 months, Colorado Springs, 15 July 1986

    Christopher Enoch Abeyta
    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    # Missing Since: July 15, 1986 from Colorado Springs, Colorado
    # Classification: Non-Family Abduction
    # Date Of Birth: November 28, 1985
    # Age: 7 months old
    # Height and Weight: 2'2, 25 pounds
    # Distinguishing Characteristics: Blond hair, blue eyes. Abeyta is of Swedish, German and Spanish descent. His hair may darken to brownish-blond as he grows older. His father and brothers are all of average to above average height and Abeyta may be also.

    Details of Disappearance
    Abeyta's parents discovered that he was missing in the early morning hours of July 15, 1986 from their Colorado Springs, Colorado home. They had put him to bed at midnight and in the morning they found his crib empty. A basement window was open and the garage door opener had apparently been stolen. Abeyta has never been heard from again. His parents alerted police to his disappearance at 6:30 a.m.
    Members of Abeyta's family were initially viewed as potential suspects in his case. It was reported that his mother failed a polygraph exam shortly after his disappearance, which she stated was caused by a withdrawal from tranquilizers.
    Both parents admitted that the baby, who was much younger than his five older siblings, was not planned and initially not wanted. There were no signs of forced entry to the house. The Abeytas said they had left the front door unlocked that night, but police stated that this was uncharacteristic of them. Police also stated that, due o the placement of Abeyta's crib at the far end of a very cluttered room, only a person very familiar with the room could have crossed it in the dark without tripping over things and making noise. Abeyta's parents are therefore not being ruled out as suspects in his disappearance.
    Three weeks after Abeyta vanished, authorities drained Quail Lake to search for his body. They had no evidence to suggest he might be there, but decided to look anyway. No evidence relating to Abeyta's case was found in the lake.
    Abeyta's family members believe that he is alive and unaware that he was abducted from his home, and that possibly the person(s) raising him also do not know he was kidnapped. His loved ones operate a web site that features information about his case. They believe he may be in Texas or New Mexico. Abeyta's case remains unsolved.



    Although I don't think they're related, this case reminds me of the Aisenberg case. I've never heard about this child before. It seems that if he really was alive and had the publicity that the Aisenberg case had, he might have been located. I wonder what makes them think he is in TX or NM? I found out about this case while perusing www.thecharleyproject.org His family also has a website set up at www.findchristopher.com Has anyone else looked into this case or know anything about it?

    Even with the publicity of the Aisenberg case she hasn't been located...if she's still alive.

    I'm not familiar with this case, but it makes me wonder sometimes, where do all these missing people go?
    When the children cry let them know we tried 'Cause when the the children sing then the new world begins

    I wonder why someone would want to take this child from his own home?

    To sell him, most likely. Blond, blue-eyed baby like that would be much sought after.

    I have more details on my own site:

    sad thing about that is whoever took him would have been watching the family and picking a suitable sign for him/her to take Christopher

    If not a family member, then someone who had intimate knowledge of the family. And the parent's actions are a tad odd... Who would tell LE that a child is unplanned and unwanted?

    Perhaps LE asked them. I know LE asks a lot of very personal questions in those kinds of investigations, all the while saying things like "I know this is difficult, but we need to know the truth." I recall one investigation with an abducted child where they conducted testing to determine that the little girl was really the offspring of her mother and father.

    that is true, plus why would you make a website up for your 'un-wanted' child?! the person that did this surely must have known the family surely because of the way they did it. i mean to do it so quietly without them waking up is one thing but apparently his bedroom was really cluttered anybody from the outside would have made a noise if they went in there. i've heard of cases were it turns out that the plumber, decorator etc has taken a child/ren becasue they had legitimate access to the houses and it was easy for them to know the layout of the house. i wonder if the family ever looked into this possibility

    I think possibly the abductor picked up the sleeping baby so carefully that he didn't wake it. Many children older than that are snatched from beds with nary a sound.

    I'm sure the Abeytas want Christopher now. A lot of people are really angry about expecting a baby, how can we afford this, years more of middle-of-the-night feedings, etc, then it's actually born and they're all "awwww, woogie woogie"

    true i know alot of people that were like that simply the abductor could have used something to cover his mouth?! to stop him from crying etc or even the child knew that abductor so when Christopher woke up there was no peep from him because he knew who the person was. i personally believe that stranger abductions happen when a child is outside like that many stories here but in cases like these i think that they are known to the family. this is only because you would have a lot of guts to break into a home and steal a child

    You have to have a lot of guts to kidnap a child, period. Elizabeth Smart's abductor broke into her home, did he not?
