    Circumstances of Disappearance

    During the morning of June 12, 1989, Jessica Moya reported her two-year old son, Anthony Moya, was missing from an apartment complex located off West 5th Avenue and Webster Street. Moya stated she awoke aounr 8:30AM and found her son was asleep in a bedroom; she had been sleeping on the floor in the apartment's living room. She then went back to sleep in the front room for another 15 minutes, woke, and discovered the front door of the residence ajar and Anthony missing. Canvasing the apartment complex revealed nothing and no one had seen the boy. Both Ms. Moya and her boyfriend, Tim Vigil, failed lied detector tests, but insist that they had nothing to do with the boy's disappearance. To date, Anthony Moya's whereabouts are unknown.

    Lakewood toddler vanishes; Hill Street Blues’ actor makes TV plea

    Jessica Moya would give her account of her personal parental nightmare dozens of times over the years: first to police, then to neighbors and family and then to reporters.

    Her toddler son Anthony simply vanished in a matter of a few minutes from his grandmother’s apartment. One minute he was sleeping peacefully in a bedroom. Fifteen minutes later he was nowhere to be found.

    Though it happened during a period of time when many people are normally scrambling to get to work or to run errands, no one at the Lakewood apartment complex near West Sixth Avenue and West Wadsworth Boulevard would report seeing the tyke wandering around unaccompanied by an adult.

    The 18-year-old mother of two awoke around 8:30 a.m. that Monday morning, June 12, 1989. Jessica had been sleeping on the floor in the apartment’s living room.

    She walked into a bedroom where her 23-month-old son Anthony had been put to bed the night before.

    Anthony was still sleeping. Jessica said she went back to sleep in the front room for another 15 minutes, woke and discovered the boy was gone.

    The apartment door was open. “I got scared,” Moya later said. “I looked all over – in the cupboards, in the closets and under the bed. I looked everywhere.”

    She ran outside and looked in the apartment pool. She ran around the grounds of the apartment complex.

    Details of Disappearance
    Anthony and his mother, Jessica Moya, were sleeping on the couch in an apartment in the 500 block of Webster Street, near west Sixth Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard in Denver, Colorado on June 12, 1989 at approximately 8:30 a.m. Anthony, Jessica and her infant daughter were staying with relatives at the time; they had been living in the apartment for about a month.

    Jessica stated she awoke at approximately 8:45 a.m. and discovered that the front door was open and her son was missing. There was no sign of Anthony or any intruders. He has never been heard from again.

    Jessica and her boyfriend were questioned after Anthony's disappearance and took polygraph tests. Jessica told the media they both failed and were regarded as suspects in her child's disappearance. She maintains her innocence and stated she believed Anthony had been abducted by a stranger.

    Other residents of the apartment complex did not report seeing Anthony or any suspicious activity in the area on the morning of his disappearance. Due to the lack of evidence in the child's case, it is classified as a non-family abduction.
