Details of Disappearance
Melody was last seen in Baltimore, Maryland on December 1st 1991. She was last seen at an apartment in the 300 block of Fremont Avenue at approximately 7:00 pm. McKoy left her own jacket at her home and instead wore a boys jacket. The boy lived in the apartment at the time.
Melody also left her bicycle behind at a friends home. The bike had a flat tire at the time of its discovery. Her mom was initially unconcerned when she noticed her daughter wasn’t home. Melody normally went to stay with an aunt and her mother assumed she did this.
Melody was discovered missing the next day when she failed to show up for school. Investigators do not believe she left without warning. Her family stated this would be uncharacteristic of her to do. Investigators suspect that Melody was abducted by a non family member.
At the time of her disappearance, Melody was a 6th grade student at Harlem Park Elementary School and was a good student who made good grades and a good attendance record. She lived in the 300 block of North Mount Street when she disappeared.
Melodys disappearance remains unsolved and there’s been no sign of her since 1991.
