Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Christopher was taken from his parents' bedroom between 12:30-2:30 a.m., just feet away from where his parents were sleeping. His parents, Gil and Bernice Abeyta, woke up to find Christopher gone from his crib. Nobody in the home heared or saw anything suspicious.
When Christopher Abeyta went missing from his Cheyenne Hills home in southwestern Colorado Springs, every family member was investigated by detectives, which is standard practice. The child's mother failed two lie-detector tests, which she blames on prescription medication. Eventually police considered other suspects and leads, but an arrest was never made, and no suspect have been named.
Christopher was the youngest of seven children. His family continues to search for him.
