What a strange case...Did that unidentified guy even exist? If yes, was it human trafficking? A pedophile himself?
Donel has been missing for awfully long 32 years this month. I hope he is a 32 y/o man now, living a happy life somewhere out there.
Maybe he never got older than 2 months though...I don't know, I tend to question the existence of this abductor in this case...
Includes age progression:
that story is pretty shaky
It does seem rather odd that a stranger could come into a come & leave with a sleeping baby never to be seen again. ( in the time it takes to grab a drink of water? )
Having said that, the mother DID pass a polygraph, FWIW. Not sure how easy THAT would be..however, I think it's worth noting

[h=3]Details of Disappearance[/h] Donel 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 photos in his black briefcase.
Trammel let him inside; Donel 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 Donel and the man were gone. No ransom note or any other clues were left behind, and neither Donel not the suspect has ever been seen again.
The man, whose sketch is posted with this case summary, was approximately 6'0 and had brown hair, a mustache and 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 Donel's abduction. His mother passed a polygraph in relation to the case. Donel's case remains unsolved.
