Distinguishing Characteristics African-American male. Black hair, brown eyes. Christopher has a birthmark shaped like a figure eight on his right leg (many sources say it was on his back) and a burn scar on his thigh. His nickname is Choo-Choo.
Details of Disappearance Christopher was last seen at the Martin Luther King Jr. Towers playground located at 113th Street and Lenox Avenue in Harlem in the New York borough of Manhattan on May 18, 1989. His mother had been with him in the park and decided to go to the store for food, but she did not have Christopher's stroller with her, so she left him in the care of of several relatives at the park.
When Christopher's mother returned half an hour later, he was gone. The relatives told Christopher's mother that they had seen him playing with a red ball. Christopher had not brought a red ball to the park and his mother could not find one in the vicinity. It had apparently vanished along with her son.
Both boys were African-American toddlers and lived in the same apartment building. Both disappeared on the same day of the week (Thursday) at roughly the same time of day (Shane at 5:00 p.m. and Christopher at 7:00 p.m.) In addition, just before his disappearance, Christopher was playing the same two children who were with Shane when he was last seen. Police still aren't sure whether the cases are related, however.
There were rumors that Christopher's mother had sold him for drugs, or that he was taken because of a drug debt. She stated she used to use crack cocaine, but had been in recovery for years by the time her son disappeared, and didn't owe anyone money. Christopher's family members took lie detector tests, but the results were inconclusive.
The three cases remain unsolved and it is unclear what happened to any of the missing children.
