This petition is to compel The Office of the District Attorney of Colorado Springs, Colorado to conduct a Grand Jury Investigation on kidnapping suspect Emma Manzanares Bradshaw, related to the kidnapping of Christopher Abeyta.
On July 15th, 1986, as he and his parents slept, an intruder crept into the suburban Colorado Springs home of 7 month old infant Christopher Enoch Abeyta, and silently snatched him from his crib. It has been almost 27 years of heartache for the Abeyta family, and they have never given up hope that their son would be found, and the perpetrator brought to justice. A suspect has been identified, but has not been charged. There have been many injustices and prejudices related to this case, and one of those is that the Colorado Springs Police department accidentally destroyed evidence in Christopher Abeyta’s case.
The family has spent years investigating the disappearance of their infant son and has collected information on the suspect that needs to be presented in full, to a Grand Jury, and their hope is that other witnesses, as well as the suspect, will be required to cooperate with the investigation. There are witnesses that have remained silent, or have not cooperated, in this investigation. The family seeks answers and justice! Please help them by signing this petition, so that it may be presented to the District Attorney in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to let them know that you stand behind the family in support of justice, not only for them, but for an innocent baby that did not deserve to be stolen away from his family by a deranged coward who came in their home while they slept.
The family is offering a $100,000 reward for information regarding Christopher Abeyta’s whereabouts.
For further information regarding this case, please refer to the Find Christopher website, as well as a Facebook page that is dedicated to finding Christopher.

      First, I would like to thank all of you who have signed the petition and shared Christopher’s story. There are currently 1900 signatures. Christopher was taken from his very own crib, just feet away from his sleeping parents. This fact alone, should tell you the degree of malevolence that the suspect is capable of. This has been an unimaginable nightmare for the Abeyta family, which has gone on for 27 years! It began with the act of one person, and was compounded by serious flaws and mistakes in the investigation, witnesses not cooperating or coming forward, and further manipulations by the suspect…as if taking their baby wasn’t enough!
      Please continue to help the Abeyta's by sharing Christopher's page, their story, and the petition. Please share with at least 5 people, and ask that they please share with at least 5 people. 27 years to endure the amount of suffering that this family has had to bear, is long enough.
      Please show you care, and share.

      No family should suffer the pain of losing a child. How awful that the original police investigation was a fail.

      We trust in the system yo take care of us that is why they take an oath to serve and protect. This was a fail and justice must be served. This child must come home, he has a wonderful family to love.
