  • Details of Disappearance
    Christian was last seen by his father, Dawan Ferguson. between 6:00 and 6:30 a.m., Dawan called the police to say that someone had driven off in his maroon 1999 Ford Expedition sport utility vehicle when he got out of the car to place a phone call to Christian's doctor at a phone booth at Skinker and Page boulevards, and he left the keys in the ignition of his car. Dawan had been driving Christian to the hospital at the time, and the boy was in the backseat of the vehicle when it was stolen. He was last seen wearing only a diaper, and wrapped was in a red and blue blanket.
    The SUV was located abandoned two hours later, at 8:00 a.m., about five miles from where it was taken, where Ronbar Lane dead-ends at railroad tracks in the city of Ferguson. Inside were a laptop computer, two cellular phones and other electronic gear. Christian was not inside, however, and police and their tracker dogs found no sign of him in the vicinity.
