On August 27, 2006, Melinda Duckett called 911 from her home in Leesburg, Florida to report that her 2-year-old son Trenton had disappeared from her bedroom while watching a movie with friends.
“He was ready for bed,” she breathed to the dispatcher. “He could have taken off his shoes and shirt. He was wearing denim shorts. He’s only 2 years old.” Police arrived at the scene and found that the screen on the window in Trenton’s bedroom had been cut off. The boy had disappeared without a trace.
Melinda Duckett was the prime suspec
Melinda Duckett was the prime suspect in the investigation. While the police said they could have arrested him within four days of their son’s disappearance, they decided to wait, hoping they would lead them to their son.

But 21-year-old Duckett never gave the cops any useful information. She appeared on the Nancy Grace TV show a few weeks later and gave conflicting information about Trenton’s disappearance. During the show, Grace accused Duckett of being evasive.
The day after the show, Duckett wrote a two-page letter to the “audience”. In the note, she expressed her love for Trenton and complained that she was treated with “ridicule and criticism”. She left the letter on the dashboard of her car before shooting herself.
Fourteen years later, the case is still open. PEOPLE confirm that Leesburg Police are still receiving advice on this puzzling matter. Authorities won’t say whether they believe Trenton is alive or dead – and they haven’t been able to resolve the case.
But Trenton was not forgotten. He would be 16 now. Late last year, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released an age-related photo of what Trenton Duckett would look like as a teenager.
His family did not give up hope that the boy was alive.
Trenton’s father, Josh Duckett, has made public appearances and occasional vigils in hopes of the boy’s return. “We never gave up and now we won’t,” he told News 6 last year. “We have been strong from day one and we know there are answers. We have prepared for the worst and we hope for the best. ”
Although authorities have not released any new developments on the case, police told PEOPLE that the case has been turned over to a cold-case team trying to uncover new information on the mysterious matter.
