Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Cary was abducted from the grounds of his day school during lunch time. He was last seen entering an unidentified vehicle and has never been seen again. Sayegh's parents received a telephone call from an unknown person later in the day which demanded $500,000 in ransom for their son's return. The person promised to call back in two days with information concerning the payment of the ransom; he never called back.
Jerald Howard Burgess became the prime suspect in the kidnapping case when he led authorities to where he believed the body was buried. The boy was not found, but one of his shoes was discovered. Burgess was charged with the boy's kidnapping, but a jury acquitted him in 1981. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison on other charges not related to the boy's disappearance.
