    Details of Disappearance

    Jeremiah was playing with friends in his family's yard at their residence on LaFontaine Avenue in the New York City borough of the Bronx on June 25, 1985. An unidentified African-American male called to Jeremiah from the street; when Jeremiah approached him, the suspect grabbed him and disappeared. Neither of them have never been seen again.

    Jeremiah's parents both became addicted to drugs after his disappearance; his mother has since entered recovery and is still searching for her son. Police believe he may have been sold after his abduction, but Jeremiah's mother believes he was taken by an abusive, jealous former boyfriend of hers who had previously threatened to abduct the child. Little evidence is available in Jeremiah's case, which remains unsolved.
