    Details of Disappearance
    Ke'Shaun was last seen at his residence in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 25, 1995. His mother, Tina Vanderhorst, told her relatives and police that the Department of Human Services (DHS) had taken the child, but the DHS had no child by that name in their custody.

    Tina had an alcohol problem at the time of Ke'Shaun's disappearance. Investigators who searched her apartment described it as filthy, cluttered and rat-infested. She had three other children who all died before they were a year old, two of them supposedly from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and the third child from pneumonia. Two additional children lived with their paternal grandmother at the time Ke'Shaun vanished. Police began reinvestigating Tina's children's deaths after Ke'Shaun disappeared, as it is extremely rare to have more than one SIDS death occur in the same family. Tina eventually admitted that she sold Ke'Shaun to an unidentified African-American female for $500. A sketch of the woman is posted below this case summary. She is described as being approximately 35 to 40 years old in 1995, 5'4 and 140 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. The abductor's ears are pierced. She may use the alias "Virginia Graham."
    Neither Ke'Shaun nor the unidentified woman have been heard from again. His mother pleaded guilty to child endangerment in connection with his case.
