In turn, he was transported to the hospital and ultimately fell into a coma. Investigators determined that the teen boy had been badly beaten and suffered extensive brain damage.
The boy also had severe facial injuries. And due to this, as well as the timeline of the discovery, Christopher’s parents eventually identified the teen boy as their son.
Days later, though, the Harveys started to doubt their identification. So, a dental records comparison was conducted, and it was confirmed that the injured teen boy was not Christopher; instead, it had been 18-year-old Scott Yoos, who disappeared while hitchhiking across the U.S.
And tragically, Christopher’s case has remained unsolved to this day. Foul play is suspected, but there is a lack of evidence regarding his disappearance.
At the time Christopher vanished, he was five foot eleven, weighed about 135 pounds, and had light brown hair and hazel eyes. The 14-year-old had moles on his upper right chest, as well as both arms, and went by the nickname “Chris.”
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeve brown plaid shirt, a leather belt with “Chris” inscribed on the buckle, and red Nike hiking shoes. Christopher would be 53-years-old today.
If you have any information regarding Christopher’s disappearance or whereabouts, you are urged to contact the Hinsdale County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 944-2291.
