Details of Disappearance

Minor was abducted from his mother's apartment in Inglewood, California on December 20, 1984. His mother, Deanna L. Trammel, had previously had a photographic portrait made of the baby. An unidentified Caucasian male arrived at their house on December 20, claiming to have the photo proofs in his black briefcase. Trammel let him inside; Minor was asleep at the time. While he was there, the man asked for a drink of water and Trammel left the room to get him one. When she returned, both Minor and the man were gone. No ransom note or any other clues were left behind, and neither Minor not the suspect has ever been seen again.


The man, whose sketch is posted below, was approximately 6'0 and had brown hair and a moustache. He had a thin build. The abductor was wearing a long-sleeved white dress shirt, a dark tie and dark-colored trousers. He has never been identified. Several area portrait businesses had sent salespeople door to door offering to make and sell holiday portraits, but none of them could be linked to Minor's abduction. His mother passed a polygraph in relation to the case. Minor's case remains unsolved.
