These feelings and questions have plagued long-time residents of Gallup and surrounding areas for over three decades in one of the most notorious missing persons cases in the state. April 6 marked 35 years since 9-year-old Anthonette Cayedito was taken from her home in the middle of the night.

Despite a bevy of tips and leads that have come up in years since, the fate of Cayedito is still unknown.


The early hours of April 6, 1986 were...
