Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Landon Deriggi was last seen leaving his Miami Shores house on the 400 block of Northwest 112th Terrace to go to the store. He vanished during his family's vacation. They had all spent a couple days camping in the Florida Everglades. They returned home late on July 26, about 10 p.m., planning to drive to Disney World the next day.
His family lived down the street from Barry University, and he would hang out at the Barry athletic field.
He suffered from hyperactivity and was small for his age. He would get picked on at school and had started running away, for brief spells. Once, he was found in Fort Lauderdale. Another time, his mother found him at the Barry field. Because of this his mother waited one or two days to contact the police when he went missing.
Searching for him, officers found some of his belongings in the hedges of a near-by house. They speculated he was meeting somebody. Landon has never been located.
