Overview of Emmanuel Birts
Emmanuel Kalief Birts was only 5 weeks old when he was abducted from his home.
On August 12 1989, a woman who called herself Debra Manning visited a Dallas family, claiming to be a social worker and telling them that their newborn baby, Emmanuel Kalief Birts, had an eye infection. Manning visited again on September 12, claiming there was a possibility Emmanuel was infected with the HIV virus. On September 13, Manning returned with a letter claiming that Emmanuel needed to be taken to the hospital for testing.
On the morning of September 14, Manning took Emmanuel, promising to return by 2:00 p.m., but never did. The family reported Emmanuel missing at 8:00 p.m., and neither Emmanuel nor Manning has been seen since.
The case remains unsolved.
