  6. Bumping for Alisha Smiley.

    I just blogged about this case. Found some archived articles from the Atlanta Daily World, sorry, no links, got them off ProQuest.

    The article from June 16, 1985 states that Alisha's aunt left the 2 children inside the Omni Complex at the bench while she bought tickets (for a wrestling event) at a ticket booth outside the Omni Complex b/c

    Source: "Search Continues for Missing Girl." Atlanta Daily World (1932-2003): 2. Jun 16 1985. ProQuest. Web. 2 Jan. 2018 .

    There were extensive searches for Smiley in the days after she disappeared. Including this from another article dated June 11, 1985:

    Source: "Child Still Missing." Atlanta Daily World (1932-2003): 1. Jun 11 1985. ProQuest. Web. 2 Jan. 2018 .

    The articles don't mention anything being found during these searches. Sadly, I didn't find a lot of info on this case.
