Details of Disappearance

Marco was last seen in Miami, Florida on May 11th 1994. He was last seen leaving his house in a trailer park in the northwestern part of Miami. His mother told police that he left the house after getting into argument with her and she threatened to punish him. She told him to take a shower and he simply walked out the door. He was never seen or heard from again.

At the time of his disappearance, Marco had just been returned home from running away. He was very upset due to the fact that his mother hit his stepfather over the head with a bottle. His mother said he left a note behind saying “I’m leaving you because you hit my daddy.”

Investigators believe that Marco might be using an assumed name rather than his real one. He is considered at risk and missing by Florida law enforcement. He has a dependency pick-up order issued against him. His disappearance remains unsolved and his current whereabouts are unknown.
