WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The developing story out of Cleveland involving three missing women who were found alive years after their disappearance, is providing hope to investigators, family and friends of those who have disappeared in our area.
Tristen Buddy Myers – Missing since Oct 5, 2000
Myers disappeared thirteen years ago from his home in Roseboro, NC. He was four-years-old at the time.
In interviews with WECT, Buddy's aunt told us she laid down to take a nap; she thought Buddy was sleeping too but he walked out of the house and down highway 24 with their two dogs.
Days later, the dogs returned, but Buddy never did.
There was hope for the family in 2003, when a boy meeting Buddy's description was abandoned at a hospital in Chicago. However, DNA tests showed the boy was not Buddy.
