    Search Resumes for Missing Four-Year-Old Boy

    June 29, 2005

    - By KATU Web Staff
    MILWAUKIE, Ore. - Detectives and members of the Clackamas County Search and Rescue team are searching a wooded area in Milwaukie for a missing 4-year-old boy.

    Zachery Sanchez Matel disappeared around 3:00 p.m. Wednesday from his home on Southeast 97th and Daphne.

    Matal was wearing black jeans, a short sleeve black and gray t-shirt and brown sandals. He is about three-feet-tall and weighs about 45 pounds.

    At first, the family thought Matel might have gone out with his grandmother, but when the grandmother returned, she said she knew nothing of the boy's whereabouts.

    Oh my. Their weather is similar to mine and it is COLD at night. It seems like they would have found some indication if he had just wandered off. I'm thinking it's ANOTHER abduction.:(

    Matel Zachery Sanchez was last seen at 3 p.m., Wednesday in his family's home at 6912 SE Daphne Court. The search began a few hours later, after family members realized no one knew where he was.

    Thursday morning, investigators put out a call for help finding a 2000 or newer green compact car that was seen on the street near Matel's home, around the time he disappeared. Milwaukie police officer Kevin Krebs said the car may be similar to a Ford Escort and investigators want to question the driver.

    “We’re looking at all avenues, all leads, and exploring those fully... we don't know exactly what the vehicle's relationship is to this particular case,” Krebs said. “Time is always a factor that works against us. So time is of the essence.”

    Car Towed From Scene Of Massive Search

    June 30, 2005

    - By KATU Web Staff
    MILWAUKIE, Ore. - A new development has surfaced in the search for a missing 4-year-old boy, raising more questions about what might have happened to the child.

    Zachary Sanchez Matel disappeared around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday from his home on Southeast 69th and Daphne, prompting a massive search effort.

    On Thursday, an older model Nissan Sentra was towed away with a crime scene investigation van following behind.

    Investigators have not revealed why they decided to take a closer look at the car, which the missing boy's grandmother had been driving on Wednesday.



    As for the search for the young boy, an Army National Guard helicopter was being used to try to spot Matel from the air and the FBI was called in to help as well.

    The Milwaukie Police Department has established a tip line for anyone with information concerning the boy's disappearance. The number is (503) 786-7492.

    Matel was wearing black jeans, a short sleeve black and gray t-shirt and brown sandals. He is about 3 feet tall and weighs about 45 pounds.

    Investigators are also asking anyone who may have seen a 2000-model year or newer green compact car in the area of the disappearance to call the tip line. The car may be similar to a Ford Escort.

    All residents within a two-mile radius are encouraged to check their homes, vehicles and property for any sign of Matel.

    "Investigators have not revealed why they decided to take a closer look at the car, which the missing boy's grandmother had been driving on Wednesday."

    Prayers are asked for a little 4 yr old boy that went missing in Milwaukee, OR on Wed. June 29th at 3:00pm. His mom took a shower and when she got out he was gone. The grandmother lives with them too and the mom thought he'd gone with his grandmother somewhere. But when the grandmother arrived at 6:30pm the boy was NOT with her.
    A big search has been going on since then and is still going on. (My son is a Search & Rescue Explorer and was called to this search.... he is out of town though and did not go).

    His name is Matel Zachery Sanchez and he is only 4 yrs old.
    Please pray for his safe return. Time is of the essence!
    They have no suspects at this time although they have not ruled anyone out.
    They impounded the grandmother's car today. Although they said this is routine. (?)
    They also said that a green car - model 2000 or newer - possibly a Ford Escort - was seen in the cul-de-sac around the time of the disappearance. They do not know if this car is involved or not.

    Not to me either, Sharon. Grandparents used to be a child's security but now some grandparents are the druggies of the 60's who never gave it up and are totally OFF to start with. Prayers for the little boy.

    We added Zachery to our front page. It took me a few minutes to change the database for the best way to include him. If anyone has additional info for contact information please let me know so I can update.

    Zachery is just below Brianna Lopez.

    I just did call the tip line to get an exact confirmation as the article has Matel spelled Matal also.

    His first Name is Matel, they are not sure as to his middle name, and last name is Sanchez so the poster at NCMEC is correct.

    Police getting tips in case of missing Milwaukie boy

    7/1/2005
    The Associated Press

    MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) — Police said Friday they have received some 125 tips into the disappearance of a 4-year-old boy who vanished from his home and that those are the basis for many areas now being searched.

    Matel Zachery Sanchez was last seen about 3 p.m. Wednesday, said Officer Kevin Krebs, spokesman for the Milwaukie Police Department.

    Krebs asked for the public's help in tracking the car of Sanchez' grandmother, which was towed from the boy's house on Thursday. He said investigators are especially interested in where the car was Wednesday afternoon.

    The tan 1992 Nissan Sentra was removed as a normal part of the investigation, he said.

    Krebs declined to go into specifics of the investigation. "We haven't closed any doors. All avenues are open," he said.

    Krebs said police have talked to all family members and that they are being cooperative.

    There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the boy's location, he said.

    From 60-70 people searched a 2-mile radius from the boy's home on Thursday. Krebs said he did not know for sure how many people were searching on Friday.

    An Oregon Army National Guard helicopter in the search is equipped with microwave gear that can transmit what it sees to crews on the ground.

    The boy, who lives with his mother and grandmother, was reported missing at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Police initially thought Matel might be with the grandmother, who had gone on an errand, but the boy was not with her when she returned home at about 6:30 p.m.

    His mother was in another room in the house when the grandmother went on the errand.

    Krebs said an Amber Alert has not been issued because authorities lack some required information, such as details about a possible suspect.

    Police said they would like to contact the owner of a small, green late-model sedan seen in the area.

    "There is no one under suspicion," Krebs said. He added, however, that nothing is being ruled out.

    The boy's parents have not released a statement.

    A grid search was started at the home Wednesday and expanded outward to areas of forest and heavy underbrush near the boy's home.

    Krebs said there had been no reports of suspicious characters in the neighborhood. The boy's father does not live in the home, but he went there Wednesday after being alerted to his son's disappearance.

    Krebs said he was not aware of any custody issues involving the family.

    Matel, who has a 1-year-old sister, was last seen wearing black jeans, a black-and-gray T-shirt and brown sandals. He's 3 feet tall and weighs 45 pounds.

    We live in the Portland area here and this is a top news story.
    (In fact, our son is a Search & Rescue Explorer and was called in to this search. He is out of town and was not abvailable to go. He'll go Sunday if they are still searching.) I may go and help search myself soon.

    One of the news clips showed the grandmother arriving at the home getting out of her car and her shirt had what appeared to be blood all over the front of it. The t.v. news camera pointed this out and zoomed in on her shirt and said "take a look at that." But my husband noticed she had a cotton ball with tape on her arm as if she'd given blood and she'd bled from it. I haven't heard any more regarding this since. They have towed her car and CSI are analyzing it.
    The police have said that they do not have any suspects at this time.
    They are still looking for a green compact car - newer model - similar to a Ford Escort that was seen in the area around the time he went missing. Might be nothing - might be connected. They just don't know at this time.
    Let's keep praying for this little guy. It breaks my heart.

    Last seen on Wednesday, today is marking 48 hours. Any new developments? Mom has a 1yo, as well? Same father? Just wondering...
    Praying for this little one.
    Scared for his well-being.

    They have now towed 2 additional family vehicles for analysis in this case - in addition to the grandmother's car they towed yesterday.
    This is starting to smell of a familial crime.
    The father gave a heartfelt plea in a press conference this afternoon. First time the family has spoken.
    They have not released the name of the grandmother but I heard on our local news yesterday that she is 42 yrs old.
    Also, one of the 2 additional family cars they towed today resembles the green car of interest they've been mentioning the past 3 days. Interesting.
    They are still searching for little Matel. I pray they find him.
