Missing Since: October 21, 1993 from Medina, New York
Classification: Non-Family Abduction

Details of Disappearance
Luna was last seen walking to her family's residence after school on October 21, 1993 in Medina, New York. She never arrived home and has not been seen again. Authorities believe Luna was abducted by Andres Escobar, who has remained at large since Luna disappeared. Photos of Escobar and his vital statistics from 1993 are posted below this case summary. Witnesses saw Escobar driving a black pickup truck with unknown Georgia license plates in the vicinity of Luna's school on the day of her disappearance.
Escobar initially abducted Luna from her family's former residence in North Carolina in April 1993, six months prior to her last abduction. He was apprehended and charged with kidnapping. Escobar posted bail shortly afterwards and threatened to abduct Luna again, saying he would not return her to her family until she delivered three of his children.
A friend of Luna's family received a phone call from the child several weeks after her October 1993 abduction. Luna apparently told the friend that she was with Escobar, but the call ended abruptly and she has never been heard from again.
Escobar may also be driving a white 1989 Ford Mustang with a dent on the driver's side door. An image of the car is available below. A warrant for Escobar's arrest from the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) was issued in November 1993.
It is possible that Luna chose to leave with Escobar of her own accord. He is still charged with kidnapping, as Luna was a minor at the time of her disappearance and her parents did not agree to send her with Escobar. Her case remains unsolved.
