    Details of Disappearance

    Melody was last seen in the 300 block of Fremont Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland, in an apartment in a now-demolished high-rise, at approximately 7:00 p.m. on December 1, 1991. She has never been heard from again. She left her own coat behind in the apartment, wearing instead a coat that belonged to a boy who lived there. She left her bicycle at her friend's home as well; it had a flat tire.

    Melody resided in the 300 block of north Mount Street in west Baltimore at the time of her disappearance. She was a sixth-grader at Harlem Park Elementary School, and had good grades and a good attendance record. Her mother initially thought she was staying with an aunt, something Melody did frequently. She was discovered missing when she did not show up for school on December 2. Melody's loved ones say it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She is believed to have been abducted by a non-family member. Few details are available in Melody's case.
