Little Christopher John Mineo Jr.-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor
email says it is from Christopher John Mineo of New York and that
his 6 year-old son, Christopher John Mineo, Jr. has been missing since
the end of 1998.
Some versions say he's been missing since May
A newer version says he's the object of an Amber Alert, a system that
puts out the word on missing children.
This a mysterious one.
The email asking for help in finding Christopher John Mineo has been
circulating for quite a while.
Original versions of it said
the boy disappeared in 1998. Some newer versions say he
disappeared in May, 2001.
So far, however, TruthOrFiction.com has not found any first-hand
evidence that the boy exists.
There is no law enforcement agency, newspaper, or missing persons
organization with any knowledge of him. So far, no Mineo family
has been found that matches the description of the father or son in
The email address in the email, CMINEO0295@aol.com,
is a real one, but has been blocked by the owner.
members are referred to a different email address, which we have sent
messages to, but with no response.
We have heard from a couple of people who claim to have spoken with
relatives of little Christopher and who say he was never really
missing, but that there was some kind of domestic dispute or custody
battle involved between his mother and father.
None of those
contacts, however, has been willing to put us in touch with the family
or to provide evidence beyond their claims.
That, along with the
fact that the Christopher story includes almost identical wording as
the classic Kelsey Brooke Jones story, puts it into the Fiction!
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
