Mother of baby snatched from crib 30 years ago has dying wish to find him

- The mother of a Colorado boy snatched from his crib 30 years ago wants to know what happened to him now that she is close to dying.

Fox 31 Denver reported Friday that Bernice Abeyta, of Colorado Springs, has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and that her last wish is to find her missing son. Christopher Abeyta was snatched from his crib on the night of July 15, 1986, when he was 7 months old.

“I do believe he's still alive and at this point I`ve been trying to communicate with him and talk to him and just say ‘you might have to find me Christopher,’” Abeyta told the station.

The 73-year-old woman said she is battling gallbladder cancer and that her days are numbered.

“You want your children to be free…and have a life,” she told the station. “So I’d like this solved before I go.”

Abeyta believes there are people who know what happened to Christopher but aren’t talking.
