On June 25, 1983, 18-month-old Vinyette Teague was in the company of her grandmother, extended family and neighbors while her parents took the evening off to go see a movie. It was a warm summer night in Chicago, Illinois, and Vinyette’s grandmother and a neighbor took turns holding the toddler while getting some fresh air in the open air hallways near their apartments. When the phone rang, her grandmother went in to take the call, and the neighbor set Vinyette down on the ground near a table where neighbors gathered playing games. When her grandmother returned, Vinyette was gone. She has never been seen again.
