Anthonette was abducted from her front door in the middle of the night on April 6, 1986 in Gallup, New Mexico. She was just nine years old at the time. She was tricked into opening the door for what she thought was an uncle. It was not. "There were several possible sightings of her in the days after her disappearance; she was allegedly seen at a restaurant with a man and kept dropping her fork. After the girl and the man left, someone found a note from the girl asking for help and the police. It has not been confirmed that the girl in the restaurant was Cayedito." Quoted from NCMEC poster.
