    Details of Disappearance

    Anthony rode with an uncle to a 7-11 convenience store on east Broad Street in Mansfield, Texas on August 29, 1981. When they arrived, the uncle went into the store to make a purchase and left Anthony asleep in backseat of the car for a few minutes. Anthony's uncle didn't notice Anthony had disappeared from the vehicle until after he'd arrived home.

    Anthony has never been heard from again. Authorities believe he was abducted by a non-family member. Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved.
