25 years ago, this week, Christopher Abeyta went missing.
He was taken from his crib, in his parent's room of their Colorado Springs home, when he was just seven months old. He hasn't been seen since, but now his family has new hope.
The Colorado Springs Police Department has given the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, permission to do a full review of the case, "There's going to be FBI analysts and also retired police detectives that are familiar with cases like this," explains Christopher's mother Bernice.
The case will be completely opened back up, every detail and piece of evidence related to Christopher's disappearance will be reviewed, "Sometimes you do feel like you're fighting the battle by yourself as a family, but it feels like a relief because it feels like you're finally getting that support that you really need," says Bernice.
Christopher's family has thought since the beginning that a woman, who had an affair with his father, had something to do with Christopher's disappearance. There's never been an arrest in the case but again with new investigators, everything will be reexamined.
The family posts the latest in the investigation on their Facebook page, click here to go there. If you have any information about Christopher's disappearance call 1-800-THE-LOST.
