Kevin Sabir Barthrop
Case #: (NamUs) 1208664
Kevin Sabir Barthrop was just 2 years old when he was last seen near his home on the 100 block of Chilton Street in Elizabeth, New Jersey on Saturday, June 12, 1999. There are no available pictures of what the toddler looked like at the time, but there is a composite sketch of what he may look like as an adult. Kevin is described as an African American male with black hair and brown eyes, and was 2’2-3’0 in height and 30-35 lbs at the time of his disappearance. His date of birth is listed as May 6, 1997.
Kevin lived with his mother and another adult female at the time. Law enforcement was not notified of Kevin being missing until 2012 when a tip came in that he was not accounted for and has not been seen for some time. When police spoke to his mother, she admitted that he had disappeared thirteen years earlier. A missing persons report was filed at that point. No one that officers spoke to would say if Kevin had died.
Investigators think people who may know what happened to Kevin are currently living in Essex County, NJ, Union County, NJ, and North Carolina.
Foul play is suspected in this case, but there are very few details available.
