    Circumstances of Disappearance
    De La Cruz was last seen in Lynn, Massachusetts in the company of a white male on Park Street on September 28, 1996.
    Prosecutors named a suspect in the disappearance of the boy, but couldn't come up with enough evidence to charge the man.
    A playmate told police he last saw Jesus at about 18.00, walking away with a man who had promised him a new bike. With them was a dog with one white eye and one brown eye. A dog matching the description given by the playmate was found by police at one of the addresses the suspect had given as recent homes.

    Jesus De La Cruz has been missing for 19 years now.

    I'm confused on how an obvious POI has essentially been let go by investigators. Was the other child's account of the events seen as untrue?

    I remember when his mother hired a psychic and the psychic claimed that he was somewhere on the grounds of the Tewksbury State Hospital, which wasn't too far from me. There were folks combing the grounds, and I believe some checked out the tunnels as well, he was obviously never found.

    This story had so many rumors going around, mainly surrounding the mother. It breaks my heart that he has never been found. It sounds like he had a rough life at home, and it appears that his life probably ended that way as well. I would love to think that some loving family member took him away and raised him in a happy home elsewhere, but I'm not holding my breath on that.

    Wherever you are, Jesus, I pray you are in the loving hands of Jesus if you passed away already, or are living a happy life somewhere out there.
