Details of Disappearance
Jeremy Dages was last seen with his mother, Bonnie Lee Dages, on April 28th 1993 in Brandon, Florida. Bonnie drove her silver 1986 Dodge Caravan to a shopping center located at the intersection of Lumsden and Lithia Pinecrest at approximately 9:00 pm of that evening.
She was meant to go on a shopping trip with Jeremy and meet with an unidentified person. The pair were never seen again. Bonnies Van was found abandoned in the centers parking lot later on. The van was locked and investigators found Bonnies purse with $75 inside of it, Jeremy’s diaper bag was also present in the vehicle.
Investigators did notice that Jeremy’s car seat was gone. A few days before they disappeared, Bonnie withdrew $15,075 from her bank account and aged it to a man who lives close to her parents home.
They suspect that this man was involved in her and Jeremy’s disappearance but there is no evidence linking him to the case. He has not been identified publicly and has not been charged with any wrongdoing in the case.
At the time of his disappearance, Jeremy lived in Lithia, Florida with his mom. Jeremy and Bonnie remain missing and their disappearance is unsolved. Foul play is suspected in the case and both were legally declared deceased in 1999.
