Case[edit | edit source]
Details: Pablo Torres, a fifteen-year-old Bronx resident who was mildly retarded, got separated from his friends en route to the World Trade Center and was unable to find his way home. He has not been seen since.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on April 29, 1985 as part of Missing... Have You Seen This Person? Special #1.
Results: Solved. Police officers found Torres riding the subway on the night of his disappearance and placed him in a child care facility when he couldn't communicate his name or address. The staff at the facility recognized Torres' picture on a WNBC-TV "Childfind" segment and contacted authorities. Because Torres was found before the episode of "Missing" aired, the show edited the segment to show him being reunited with his father.
