FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. -- Eighteen years after his abduction and murder, justice remains elusive for Levi Frady. Police released sketches of two men they believe may hold clues to the case, but they still haven't been able to track them down. They're hoping sharing those old sketches on social media will help solve this Georgia mystery.
His abduction changed the way we respond to missing children, but Levi Frady's own case remains unsolved.
On Wednesday, October 22, 1997, 11-year-old Levi Frady was riding his bike down Little Mill Road in Forsyth County. He was last seen just before 7 p.m.
"It was in an area none of the neighbors would have been able to see it," Major Brandon Branson with the Dawson County Sheriff's Office told 11Alive'sVinnie Politan.
"It" was the abduction. It happened on Little Mill Road. His bike was found near a creek just off the side of the road.
The search for Levi ended the next day miles away from where he was taken. Deep in the woods inside the Dawson Forest, a hunter made a tragic and heartbreaking discovery.
"His body was submerged," Major Branson said. "That's where murder had taken place."
No one has been charged in the abduction and murder.
