The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has an age-progression video in the unsolved disappearance of a Colorado baby who was snatched from his crib, 32 years ago Sunday.

The Colorado Springs Police Department said in a Facebook post Friday, the video shows Christopher Abeyta, who was snatched as he slept on July 15, 1986, when he may look like now.

“He was 7 months old when he was snatched from his Colorado Springs home,” the post said.

THE MOTHER OF THE BABY SNATCHED FROM CRIB 30 YEARS AGO, WANT TO DIE TO FIND HIM

“There is no time, have we ever stopped looking for him, ever,” Christopher’s sister, Denis Alves, told Fox 31 Denver. “Never imagining we would not reply to the question of what happened to him after 30 years.”

Along with the video, Alves wrote an open letter to her brother on the missing children center website.

“Not having answers and not knowing if you are safe or even life does not come with a lock,” she wrote. “We continue to plea for your kidnapper, and that information to do the right thing and come forward.”

The family of Christopher Abeyta continues to search for him, after he was stolen from his cradle 32 years ago.

Bernice Abeyta died of cancer in 2017 after devoting her life to finding her son, KUSA-TV reported. Christopher was the youngest of her seven children.

The station quoted Police of Colorado Springs as say people of interest were questioned in the case, but no one has been arrested.
