On June 30, 1994, Crystal Ann Tymich, who was six at the time, was playing with her three older brothers in the front yard of their residence in South Los Angeles. Her brothers went inside the house and left Crystal playing in the front yard by herself. When they returned, Crystal was gone. It is believed she was picking peaches from her neighbor's front yard between 2:00 to 5:00 pm. She was wearing a pink t-shirt, shorts with a floral print, and tennis shoes with pictures of a mermaid.
In 2005, more extensive search efforts were conducted. Police searched the crawl space of a home across the street from hers, and some bones were found, but testing proved them to be animal bones. No evidence was uncovered during the search. Police now believe she was abducted by a non-family member.
At the time of her disappearance, Crystal was 4'0 and approximately 60 pounds. She is a Caucasian female with light brown hair and hazel/brown eyes.
