Select It Sunday: Alexander Ferguson

This Sunday I’m profiling Alexander Ferguson, selected by Annie. Alexander was born on New Years’ Eve, 1987 and disappeared on March 9, 1988, at the age of only two months. His mother, Eugenia Cortez, vanished with him; I have no description for her. I have no further information for either of them: it’s a “few details are available” case.

This is beyond frustrating. A two-month-old baby doesn’t just go walking out on his own. Was this a family abduction? Did Alexander’s mother run away and take him with her? Did she give him to someone else? Did one or both of them meet with foul play? Why isn’t Alexander on the NCMEC database? I have no idea.

If he’s still alive — and there’s nothing to suggest that he isn’t — Alexander Ferguson would be 26 years old today.
