    I highly believe that the most common outcome of very young children being abducted is to be raised by a different family, not to abuse or kill them, in most cases that I've seen. I don't have many doubts that Cindy Lou is alive and under a different identity. Although, it would be odd if she didn't find out or suspect anything, since things like social security cards, IDs, birth certificates, etc. can be difficult to produce when a child is not legally yours.

    I agree! I believe she is alive as well and unaware that she was abducted! I have heard cases of identity theft where people have used children's SS# who have passed away at an early age. A prime example is that of Lori Ruff, a.k.a. Becky Turner, a.k.a. Kimberly McLean (which was discovered to be her real name).
    Link to her case for reference: https://crimewatchers.net/forum/ind...oe-found-in-longview-tx-kimberly-mclean.1844/

    Oh wow, that could be it too. Let's hope one day that she finds out the truth. It would be good if her case was more publicized, because even if she had passed away, maybe she has children or relatives that could identify her.

    This is also Canada. What safeguards against identity theft did they have, especially about the time she would have started school?

    It was a more innocent time. And "Canada" also has and had far less crime. I have no doubt she was abducted. But I agree for far less sinister reasons.
