Replay: Christopher Abeyta Part 1
Christopher Abeyta was just seven months old when he disappeared from his crib on July 15, 1986. His family lived in a quiet neighborhood of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and were in the habit of leaving their doors unlocked. No one heard anyone come in and take Christopher that night, but by morning, he was gone. Panic immediately set in when no one could find the baby. They ran downstairs to find the front door left open. The investigation focused on the family for a long time, but in recent years, a person of interest has been identified. Even though detectives focused so much on the family, that didn't stop the Abeyta family from searching independently. One of Christopher's sisters, Denise, joined me for this episode.
In this first part of the story, we discuss the first 23 years of the search for Christopher.
