One-year-old Leon was last seen on December 15, 1985 in Brooklyn, New York.

He was last seen at the New Temple Mount Zion Christ Church in the 1600 block of Nostrand Avenue in the company of his non-custodial father, Junior Lee Smith (who was 19 years old at the time) and his non-custodial grandmother, Merline White.

Junior & Merline were later found without Leon and Junior admitted to disposing of his son's body.

Junior was never charged in connection with his son's case, but was later incarcerated twice for burglary and robbery. Leon's remains have never been located, but foul play is suspected in his disappearance.
