    CA - Kevin Collins, 10, San Francisco, 10 Feb 1984

    Twenty years ago, a freckle-faced, wide-eyed 10-year-old boy disappeared without a trace from a San Francisco street corner and gave birth to what has become the missing children's movement in America.

    Doyle Twenty years ago yesterday. And Kevin would now be 30 years old now. It blew me away since I live here in the Bay area and still rememeber the day it happened. And because of this his parents could not take the strain and are now divorced. And he had 7 siblings . It is still a heart wrenching story.
    TYBEE U WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND LOVED.

    I Too, grew up in the Bay Area and vividly remember the day it happened as well. So real and so scary! I pray that his family is getting some peace in their lives.

    I can not imagine what families like Kevin's have to go through... The years and years of not knowing is so unfair...

    Cases like these are so sad. I can't even begin to imagine what these parents must go through, wondering and imagining. I pray for all of these families and these children.

    Behzad Mofrad stole the wrong name.

    Of all the identities he could have chosen to steal, he chose that of Kevin Andrew Collins, a child abducted from a San Francisco street corner 22 years ago Friday.

    The name meant nothing to Mofrad, who had no idea Collins' abduction drew national attention and the boy was among the first whose picture would appear on milk cartons across the country.

    "He really made a serious error in choosing this name," said Thomas Depenbrock, regional special agent in charge of the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service, which investigates passport fraud. "I don't think he knew what he had gotten into, that this name was well known."

    Mofrad, a 40-year-old man with addresses in Pinole and San Ramon, was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison Thursday after pleading guilty in November to a passport fraud scheme.

    I remember when this happened and it seemed like the case went cold fairly quickly. My brother had told me about someone contacting a Priest in San Francisco to drop Kevin off at some point but it never happened.....I am not sure if that was accurate.

    I wonder if they had any suspects........suspects who could be tied to other missing kids in the area?

    I remember hearing that at the time also. I grew up in the Bay area and was pregnant at the time that Kevin disappeared. I remember thinking how scary it was that you could lose your child so quickly.

    There were SO many child kidnappings and disappearances in that area. Just to name a few in addition to Kevin, there was Michaela, Amber, Anna, Polly, Ilene, and that is just barely scratching the surface.

    Scary stuff, especially with so many cases as yet unsolved.

    I agree! You would think that they would have been solved by now.

    BUT it seems there are alot of missing kids in California....and Adults!
    I was just cruising through the missing person posters and noticed that there were alot of MALE adults missing in San Fran, Oakland and a few other city's in the bay area, during the late 70's and early 80's, and they all seemed to happen in certain months, and the men just dissapeared without a trace.

    Very strange!

    I-Team: Did a serial killer take missing child Kevin Collins?

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Kevin Collins was one of the first missing children whose case got national attention. Thousands of tips came in over the years, but they all lead nowhere. But now the I-Team has uncovered the one serious lead San Francisco police either missed or chose to ignore.

    He might have thrown him off the Golden State bridge? How awful!

    That would explain why he was never found. the currents around the bridge are wicked!
