I remember watching this case on unsolved mysteries years ago and it has always bugged me as it has never been solved. In 1986 in Gallup, New Mexico 9 year old Anthonette Cayedito was abducted from her home. Her mother Penny Cayedito searched the whole neighbourhood when she woke up in the morning and there was no sign of Anthonette.
A year later a call went into the Gallup Police Department with a young girl claiming to be Anthonette and in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Then in the background as she was going to say her where abouts a voice said “Who said you can use the phone”. Then the call ended.
Then five years later in Carson City, Nevada a waitress claims to have seen Anthonette in a restaurant with a male and a female. Apparently the girl who she thought was Anthonette wrote on a napkin ” Please Help Me, Call the Police”.
* The night of Anthonette’s disappearance her mother was at a local bar and left her and her sisters with a babysitter.
* Anthonette;s mother often left Anthonette and her sisters alone when she went and frequented bars.
* There is rumors that Penny Cayedito was a drug addict.

Will It Ever Be Solved? Optimism is a good thing but sometimes we have to be realistic. Odds are Anthonette is dead. Probably died within a few days of being kidnapped. Her mother Penny died in 1999. The police did want to interview here before her death believing she may of knew more about Antoinette’s disappearance than she claimed. Penny took a polygraph test and failed it.
