  • Details of Disappearance
    Katheryne was last known to be in the company of a family acquaintance who has refused to divulge the whereabouts of the child. Her mother, Francis Moya, went off to work and left her 4-year-old daughter with her boyfriend at the couple's Riviera Beach apartment. The man whom police suspected was responsible for Katheryne's disappearance, Moya's then-boyfriend Misbah Kazi, is in a California prison sentenced to life for trying to kill a woman in San Jose. Kazi was the last person with whom Katheryne was seen, and after the disappearance police accused him of kidnapping Katheryne, who is not his child, in order to force Moya to give him custody of their other child. A Palm Beach County jury acquitted Kazi of the kidnapping charges in 1994.
