Jeremy Bright

MYRTLE POINT, Ore. - A quarter century ago this Sunday, Jeremy Bright set off for the Coos County Fair.

He was never seen again.

Bright, who was 14 when he disappeared on Aug. 14, 1986, would be looking forward to turning 40 next May. >>> See an age-progressed picture

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children lists the case as a "non-family abduction."

Investigators and Bright's family believe the boy's life was brought to an end shortly after his abduction, although his body has never been found.

To mark the 25th anniversary of his disappearance, Bright's sister told KCBY News that his family would like to have as many people as possible gather at 3 p.m. on the baseball field in front of Myrtle Crest School.

The plan is to release balloons in honor of Bright and other missing children.
