There is a new private investigator on the case of a local missing boy. Christopher Abeyta disappeared from his parents' home in Colorado Springs 27 years ago.
Now his family has hired Dan Corsentino to try and find out what happened to Christopher. Corsentino used to be the police chief in Fountain and the sheriff in Pueblo County.
Christopher’s parents called police to report him missing early in the morning of July 15, 1986. He was just seven months old and they say he disappeared from his crib during the night. Corsentino says he's going to do everything he can to bring closure for the family.
"I want to under promise and over deliver. I don't know what I can do with this case at this point. But I wouldn't have taken on the case if I didn't feel fairly confident that there may be a solution to it or there may be a person that's still out there,” Corsentino explained.
11 News has talked with the Abeytas many times over the years. They tell us they have never given up on finding their son.
"Christopher has four grandparents that have died, he's got an uncle and a cousin who have died without anything being solved. They had to die not knowing,” Bernice Abeyta said.
11 News also talked with Christopher Abeyta's sister. She says they are determined to get answers and they hired Corsentino to get a fresh set of eyes on the case.
Because Christopher was taken when he was a baby, he may have no idea who is really is.
