Maurice Jefferson??? I never heard about this case. Who are his parents???Was the last name Jefferson his mother's maiden name or his father's last name???? Maybe the father came and got him and than they moved to another state. Maybe if they reenact a movie,maybe the young man will come out of hiding. I hope that he is alive. But I would lean more to the father's side of the family.

It has been a LONG time since this young man has been seen. I do hope he is alive, but what are the chances?

He would have called. The police would have known that. I think someone killed and buried him. Sorry to say that, but no one can just disappear like that.

I really can't believe all the negative comments on here. A child disappeared, gone. Someone loved him, he was someone's son, grandson, and all you people can do is make jokes about it? What if it were your child? Doesnt' matter one bit how long it's been, it's still an awful thing to live wtih. Pray that someone you love never disappears, then maybe you would not see the humor. My heart goes out to that family. I hope that there is some closure that comes out of this.

So my comment was negative??? I never heard of this young man back in 1983.I hope his mother finds out what happened to him. She does deserve closure.

He was kidnapped by a white hippie woman drifter and brainwashed into thinking she was his mom and he was abandoned by his Kenyan dad.

There have been many missing cases solved, and unfortunately not a lot of happy endings....Just recently a van was found in Coral Springs with the body ( remains ) of a missing person who was reported missing 30 years ago. Another van was found in a western Broward canal with the remains of 5 young men and woman who were heading to California, they were never heard of again and the families thought they were all living in Ca. I don't know what happened to this young man, but, with everyone that had searched for him and still nothing, I would believe there is a past we don't know about......I don't think we will find out.
Great

idea for this documentary! I give a big applaud to this young lady doing this. No matter, the religion, race, heritage, height or weight this is a human being! Join together for the sake of all innocent children. Red, I am a mother of 3 boys, and this story saddens me. However, your blessed grandmother and mother are keeping this story alive! What a loving family you have Red! You are blessed RED, and you will forever be in my heart. Just from a loving mother in Wellington! GOD BLESS

What makes you think it is about you, Liz? Did you fail to note Redneck's ludicrous comment? Some people really don't understand that they are not the center of attention.

Did Red ever make it to see his friend?
Did anyone see him in the area?

No wonder they never found this young man, and I doubt they will now when this story doesnt give us the citizens of Broward county more information.
Uh Oh

I can't help but wonder where Jeffrey Dalmer was living at in 1983 when this boy disappeared. Dalmer's name came up in the Adam Walsh case who disappeared and was murdered in 1981. Turned out that Dalmer was living in Hollywood, FL at the time of Adam's murder. BSO has recently started a cold case file online called "Found and Forgotten" at sheriff.org for anyone who wants to check out the unsolved cases for Broward County. I hope this case can be solved and give some closure for the grieving family after all these years.
