Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Michael was abducted at gunpoint from his school. Michael Hughes was living with foster parents when he was kidnapped by Franklin Delano Floyd, who claimed to be his father. Franklin Delano Floyd is not the father of Michael Hughes. Floyd was arrested in Louisville, Kentucky, but Michael was nowhere to be found.
Floyd was convicted of kidnapping Michael, and sentenced to more than 50 years in prison. Floyd insisted the boy is alive and safe, but he refused to tell anyone where Michael is or who is taking care of him. The child's whereabouts are still unknown.
In 2015 Floyd confessed to killing Michael. He told an FBI agent he shot Michael twice in the back of the head. He then told the agent he buried the boy near the last exit leaving Oklahoma and heading into Texas. A search was done of the area, but no evidence was ever found.
The boy’s mother died in 1990, and investigators believe Floyd may also have details about what really happened to her.
