    Details of Disappearance
    Andrew was last seen on July 5, 1996 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. His father, Everett Thompson Sr., owned Eat and Company, a business located in the Park Manor neighborhood of the city. The family lived in the 8100 block of South Rhodes Avenue. Everett Sr.'s mother reported their family missing when she was unable to contact them by July 17, 1996, 12 days after they were last seen. Andrew's mother, Lydia Thompson, and his older brother, Everett Thompson Jr., disappeared as well. None of the family members have been heard from again. Lydia's brother, Kenneth White, was questioned several times regarding his sister's family's whereabouts. He is an ex-convict who had lived with the family during the summer of 1996 and in early July, Lydia called 911 to report that he had threatened to kill her with an ax. White had been indicted for falsifying Lydia's signature on a check shortly after she was last seen. He was driving her van when he was arrested. White committed suicide in December 1997, while in jail on suspicion of mail fraud. Before his death he did not reveal any possible information he may have concealed regarding the Thompsons' cases. White was never charged in connection with their disappearances. He has a record of kidnapping and rape. Bloody clothing, including a boy's sock, was found in his trailer after the Thompson family's disappearance, but it was not released whose blood it was. In June 1998, investigators searched White's former residence and the area around it for the Thompson family's bodies, but they did not find human remains. There was speculation that the Thompsons may have left Chicago and traveled to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or St. Paul, Minnesota. No evidence has been located to prove these theories. The family's cases remain unsolved.

    What Happened to the Thompson Family (March 9, 2012)

    Everett Thompson owner of Eat and Company, a Park Manor neighborhood business, was last seen on July 5, 1996 by one of his employees.

    On that July afternoon in 1996 Thompson's father phoned his son, Everett, at the Chicago restaurant the younger man owned. The elder Thompson recalled that he also broached the topic of his son's quarrelsome brother-in-law, an ex-convict, and a freeloading house guest of Everett and his wife, Lydia Thompson. Everett interrupted their conversation to take a frantic phone call from Lydia, at home with the couple's two sons, Everett Jr., 10, and Andrew, 8.

    Back on the line seconds later Everett told his dad he had to go home right away. Lydia's brother was chasing her around the house with an ax. She locked herself in the bedroom and called Everett to come home.


    The early July phone call was the last time either man spoke to the other.
    Really sad case. I hope they are found someday so they can be laid to rest properly.
