Christopher Enoch Abeyta

Christopher Enoch Abeyta, 7 months old, went missing from Colorado Springs, Colorado on July 15, 1986

In the morning hours on July 15, Christopher's parents could not locate him in his crib. They had put him to bed the night before at about midnight. They found their garage door opener missing and a basement window open. They called police at 6:30 a.m. Police found no forced entry but did find the front door had been open all night.

At first, Christopher's parents seemed like likely suspects. They had separated and were reconciling. Christopher's disappearance was the first night his father had stayed in the house since the separation, and his mother failed two polygraph tests, which she blamed on her withdrawal from tranquilizers, but can also be attributed to trauma and stress. To this date, Christopher's parents have yet to be cleared from involvement, but police have never charged them either. 

Christopher's family refuses to believe he is dead and believes he and whoever has raised him do not know he's a missing child. They run a Facebook page with over 17 thousand followers.

Before Christopher's disappearance, the family received prank hang-up calls for about six months prior but the calls suddenly stopped the night he vanished. They started again a few months after. 

Christopher's sister believes a woman named Emma Bradshaw was the kidnapper. Bradshaw had had an affair with Christopher's father and had a history of braking into their home. Bradshaw maintains her innocence and she has never been named a suspect in the case. In 2015, Bradshaw won a civil judgment for $150,000 against Christopher's sister for impeding her employment. 

Several years after Christopher's disappearance, Colorado Police Department destroyed most of the investigative files and accused by the Abeyta family of negligence. 

Both of Christopher's parents have passed away. His sisters continue the search.

There is a $200,000 reward leading to information that leads to Christopher and the arrest and conviction of his abductor. If you have any information about the disappearance of Christopher Enoch Abeyta, please call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7000.
