Details: On the night of June 5, 1986, 4-year-old Jessica Gutierrez was sleeping in her bedroom with her two sisters when she was abducted by unknown intruder(s) who had broken into the house through the living room window. The next morning, her family discovered the scene, and her six-year-old sister claimed that she was taken by a man with a "magic hat". Jessica was never seen again. Her family believes that she may have been abducted by a close friend of theirs. Despite this, the case remains unsolved.
Suspects: The family friend that is believed to be the abductor was a twenty-seven-year-old who had served time in North Carolina for rape. In 1987, he told another inmate that he had kidnapped a young girl and would confess if given immunity for the crime. However, immunity was denied and the man did not confess to police. Police did find his fingerprint in the house, but he has never been publicly identified or charged in the case, although he is the prime suspect.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the January 24, 1990 episode. The case was featured with three other missing children cases: Leticia Hernandez, David Borer, and Malakia Logan.
Results: Unsolved. When Jessica's sister was an adult, she was re-interviewed, she told police that she remembered that Jessica was lifted out of her bed by a man, and taken away. She claimed that the man did this without waking her, and that she was afraid to tell anyone about it. She still could not identify the man. Jessica still remains missing.
