Details of Disappearance
Cayedito was last seen inside her family's residence in Gallup, New Mexico on April 6, 1986. Her sister told authorities that Cayedito opened the front door after an unidentified male knocked at approximately 3:00 a.m. Her sister reported that the man claimed to be their Uncle Joe. He allegedly grabbed Cayedito as she opened the door and forced her into a vehicle. Cayedito has never been heard from again.
Authorities questioned Cayedito's uncle regarding her disappearance, but he is not considered a suspect and was never thought to be involved in her abduction. There were several possible sightings of her in the days after her disappearance; she was allegedly seen at a restaurant with a man and kept dropping her fork. After the girl and the man left, someone found a note from the girl asking for help and the police. It has not been confirmed that the girl in the restaurant was Cayedito.
Cayedito's mother visited a Native American medicine woman sometime after her daughter's disappearance. The woman claimed that Cayedito was alive and being held against her will somewhere in the southwestern United States. She also said that Cayedito may have given birth to a child in the years following her abduction.
Cayedito's case remains unsolved. Investigators believe foul play may have been involved in her disappearance and that she is deceased.
