This week’s Flashback Friday case is Nathan David Schlatter, who disappeared with his mother, Terri, from Tulsa, Oklahoma sometime in February 1985. Terri had fraud charges pending against her at the time of her disappearance, and at first when she and Nathan vanished the police thought she was just on the run. They don’t think that anymore. Terri’s husband Darrell, Nathan’s father, is a person of interest in their disappearances. He, however, is deceased; he took his own life in 1993.
Nathan is one of the few missing children who is not featured on either the NCMEC or NamUs databases. He was only a year and a half old when he disappeared, and would be 32 this month if he’s still alive.
