Family and friends of Christopher Abeyta are celebrating his 24th birthday today, but Abeyta will not be in attendance. 23-years ago little Christopher was kidnapped from his crib in his Colorado Springs home, and he has not been seen since. He was just 7-months old at the time of his abduction.
The celebration took place at 11 a.m. at Quail Lake Park in Cheyenne Hills. The family invited anyone that wanted to send a birthday wish to Christopher to this morning's balloon release. The Abeyta family says they believe that Christopher is still alive.
