    Details of Disappearance

    Wallace was last seen playing at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington on January 10, 1983. He was accompanied by his father, Stanley Guidroz, at the time. Wallace began to play with a female child about his age, and the girl's mother, near a duck pond. Stanley left them and went for a walk around the pond with a man whom he assumed was the little girl's father. The two men shared a beer. When Stanley returned twenty-five to forty minutes later, his son was gone, as were the woman and child. Stanley and the man agreed to split up and search for them. They went in opposite directions and the man never came back. Stanley searched for his son for two hours before alerting police at 7:42 p.m. Wallace has never been heard from again.

    Authorities made composite sketches of the man and woman. The sketches are posted below this case summary. The man, woman and child were never identified. Investigators are not sure if they were involved in Wallace's disappearance, but they are sought as witnesses. The man is described as Caucasian, in his late twenties to early thirties in 1983, and about 6'0 tall with a medium build. He had shoulder-length, sandy brown hair, a moustache and a beard, and he wore a baseball cap. The woman is also Caucasian, 5'2 and 115 to 120 pounds, with light blonde hair that fell below her shoulders and long eyelashes. She was in her early to mid-twenties in 1983. The girl is described as Caucasian with long blonde hair; she was about three years old.

    After Wallace's disappearance became public, a woman called police to say she and her children had been at Point Defiance Park the day the child disappeared and had seen a man and woman, and the man matched the description of the man Stanley saw. The woman stated the couple had tried to abduct her children twice. Her account has never been verified. Authorities believe Wallace was abducted, but little evidence is available in his case.

    Wallace's mother died in 1995. Stanley was last known to be living in Louisiana. Wallace's case remains unsolved. Investigators believe he may have been the victim of a homicide.
