    Details of Disappearance

    Chris and his mother, Lesa Cunningham, were last seen by a friend in Pomona, California. They visited Lesa's brother in Pomona that day, then went shopping with their friend before dropping the friend off. They were going to go to the Slater Bros. market on Riverside Drive and Yorba Avenue in Chino, California; they lived nearby with Lesa's boyfriend at an apartment on Yorba Avenue. Chris and Lesa were supposed to be home by 6:00 or 7:00 p.m., but they never arrived. Neither of them have ever been heard from again. On September 9, two months after their disappearances, Lesa's near 1987 Toyota Tercel with temporary license plates was found abandoned in downtown San Diego, California; the car's stereo and speakers were missing. There were no fingerprints on the car and no indications of a struggle.

    Lesa has no history of leaving without warning, and she never picked up her last paycheck and never accessed her bank account after her disappearance. Chris and Lesa are considered missing under suspicious circumstances. Their cases remain unsolved.
