Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, hazel eyes. Gabriel has a mole on his right wrist. One of his upper front teeth was chipped at the time of his 1982 disappearance. A close-up of the chipped tooth is posted with this case summary.
Authorities believe that Gabriel and Jon may have fallen through thin ice near their residences and drowned, as they were last seen walking together near the Allegheny River. Footprints in the snow led to the riverbank, but there were no prints leading away from the river.
However, Jon had been told by his parents to stay away from the river, and he dependably obeyed this rule. An extensive search of the water turned up no evidence that anyone had fallen in.
Police have lost touch with Gabriel's family, who moved away from Tarentum in the 1990s. Jon's family still resides in the house he lived in. Due to the lack of clues in the boys' cases, their disappearances are classified as non-family abductions.
