When the friends' family awoke in the morning, Melody was gone. She had left her coat behind and taken one belonging to a teen-age boy living at the apartment. No one saw her leave.

    Melody was also mentioned on the thread for Toya Hill - could the two cases be related?

    Good question. A lot of time had passed between the two cases - almost 10 years.

    It would be nice to see how far apart the two cases were geographically and if there were any connections - such as relatives, or others connected with both cases.

    20th anniversary approaching...

    1 December 2011, will mark the 20th anniversary of the disappearance of Melody McKoy. She was only 12 years old.

    Does anyone know the status of her case, or if there are any plans for an anniversary article on her disappearance?

    Melody has been missing for 24 years now. It's sad to see that there is still a minimal amount of information available.

If and who harmed her has obviously gotten away with this crime, and maybe abducted other people, if indeed a non family abduction.

    I found a photo of the old demolished high rise where Melody lived when she went missing ,it was named Lexington Terrace and it was torn down in 1996 . lex.jpg

    Also the Charley project page has her home as being on N.Mount street but the Baltimore Sun reported she went missing from friends home address on Saratoga street ,I searched a name of a neighbor quoted in an article to pin point the address down and come up with the 1800 block W saratoga.

    Not a really safe neighborhood. It was reported in the same article that the homicide division had taken the case over.

    From what I remember being a teenager in that general area around the time Melody went missing, Lexington Terrace *in particular* was notorious. It was a high rise built in the 60s, I think, and it was a dire place to live by the time it was torn down -- I think it was mostly vacant, falling apart, lots of crime, major drug traffic. Who knows if that relates to what happened to Melody, though. :/

    Thank you for the Sun article. Man. Melody sounds like she came from a family full of love. My heart breaks for her mother. I can't imagine having to cope with a loss of this magnitude.
