    There is a sicko named Frank Wyant that may be a suspect. He lived in Allentown (don't know where) and was arrested in 1989 and 2010 for child porn charges. He is currently in prison. Does anyone know a way to find out where he lived in 84?

    Hi Bethann,
    I've been popping in to read this thread now again over time and I want to commend you for taking an interest in this sweet boy's case. It's nice to see someone finally giving him a voice!

    I am a native to Louis's hometown, and am familiar with the area he disappeared from, and I was close to him in age at the time he disappeared and remember this case well.

    I wanted to ask, is there something specific that makes Frank Wyant a possible suspect? I looked up his court records via the ujsportal website and only found the cases you listed.

    A few random thoughts and memories....

    The area he disappeared from and lived in is very blighted. It is completely overrun with drugs, crime, and gangs. One of the worst areas in the city. Back in the 80's, it was slightly better, as today we have so many NYC implants that have moved here that it went downhill fast. But even back then there was extreme poverty, drugs, and crime in that area. A lot of homeless too.

    There was a state mental institution that was closed near the time Louis disappeared. While I am in no way blaming any patients, this may be worth noting. My mother worked at this institution in the 60's and early 70's. many of these patients were violent. In the 80's the government began ceasing funding for these hospitals, and as a result many patients were released. They were literally just sent off with no program or assistance in place. I remember driving down Hamilton Street with my mother as a child, and there would be homeless people camped out here and there. She would recognize several of them as former patients of the State Hospital, and in fact many of them were still wearing the uniform green pants that the hospital clothed them in! So around that time frame, many violent, mentally ill people were released on the city, some of them predators, some of them having committed sexual assaults previously. Just one possible alternative.

    Also, with this Wyant man. There is/ has been another child predator in the Allentown area. He was convicted of child rape in the 70's, so may have been in jail at the time of Louis's disappearance, but I'm not sure. Here's a recent news article about this very special snowflake:

    There's a few more recent articles about him, he's currently in prison.

    I'm not sure how to figure out if Wyant was in the area at the time, without either having Law Enforcement or a P.I. involved. None of the records during that time would have been online now. Maybe old tax returns?

    What was the purpose of a babysitter if they were not watching over Louis?
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    Thank you for your response.
    Louis stated that someone named Frank had molested him. I just checked current inmates named Frank and found Frank Wyant. The child pornography charges stem from a fire that broke out in his home. When the fire department came to put it out they discovered the porn. The home is located less than three miles from where Louis lived on Chew St. But I don't know how long Frank has lived in that home?
    I will be calling this tip into the Police just in case.
    Thanks for the info you shared. Very interesting!

    Louis Mackerley — Louis was last seen June 7, 1984, walking in the area of Fourth and Gordon Streets in Allentown. He was walking from his home to the home of a nearby friend. At the time Louis was missing four front teeth. He was wearing a maroon and white striped shirt, blue pants, pink socks, and brown shoes.

    Dear Louis,

    I am sorry so many people failed you in your very short life. You deserved so much more....

    You deserved to have a responsible grown-up to come home to...someone who would cheerfuly say "hi Louis!" and give you a kiss on your head and a hug.
    You deserved someone who would listen to how the kids teased you about your pink socks and about how some older kids were chasing you and you were scared.
    You deserved someone to realize that you were a small, precious, and very vulnerable child who needed and deserved more caring supervision.
    You deserved having rules about strangers.
    You deserved to have a grown-up know where you were at all times and be at home in the late afternoon to watch cartoons on the couch and listen to someone read you your favorite book or help with your homework.
    You deserved to be believed about your sexual and physical abuse.
    You deserved someone to ask how you got two unidentified round burn scars on your tiny chest.
    You deserved so much more than you received.

    I am sorry Louis. My mama heart aches for you. Wherever you might be, I hope you can feel the love of so many people who wish you had a better life and we are still looking for you sweet boy.
