Mitchell Deon Owens (4) - Menlo Park CA, 1983

Missing Since: February 3, 1983 from Menlo Park, California
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: November 21, 1978
Age: 4 years old
Height and Weight: 3'0, 40 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: African-American male. Black hair, brown eyes. Mitchell has a scar on the upper portion of his nose. He has a surgical scar on his left rib area. Mitchell has a lazy right eyelid. Some agencies give his middle name as "Deshaun" or "Deshon." He may use the first name Michael.

Details of Disappearance

An unidentified man broke into the Owens family's apartment in eastern Menlo Park, California on February 3, 1983. The intruder attacked and severely beat Mitchell's mother, Ora Owens, and Mitchell walked into the room while the beating was taking place. Ora screamed at him to run away. The attacker than attempted to strangle Ora with a telephone cord and she lost consciousness. She was later found and taken to the hospital, where she woke up two days later. She had to spend weeks in the hospital recovering from her ordeal. Mitchell has never been heard from again.

Ora received telephone calls for years following his disappearance from an unidentified male. The caller repeatedly threatened to abduct her other two sons. It is not known if the calls are related to Mitchell's disappearance.

Authorities stated that they hoped current forensic technology which was unavailable in 1983 could help solve Mitchell's abduction and the assault on Ora. She has criticized the police investigation, stating investigators did not look hard enough for Mitchell because the family is African-American and poor. Ora's attacker has never been identified and Mitchell has never been located.
