Circumstances

Monique Pebbles Santiago was last seen at approximately 8:00 A.M. This incident occurred on March 29, 1990 in Albany, New York. She was leaving for school at the time. Her family resided in an apartment on Washington Avenue.

Monique called her mother at work at approximately 12:00 P.M. She said that she had missed the school bus and would remain at home for the day. Her mother, Annie Graniela (sometimes referred to as Anna Castro), returned to their residence during the evening hours. And she realized that her daughter had disappeared. Monique has never been heard from again.

Graniela waited until over eight hours passed. Then she reported her daughter as a missing child. She believed that the police department would not accept a report unless Monique had been missing for an extended period of time. As a result, the investigation was stalled and many possible leads had gone cold by the time law enforcement became involved.

An unidentified adult male acquaintance of Monique’s made a confession. He said that he had taken her to the State University of New York (SUNY)’s Albany campus five days before her presumed abduction. The man stated that he did not have permission from the girl’s mother to drive her to the school.

He said that he had seen Monique in a parking lot. The lot was located on Central Avenue in Albany across the street from a former Woolworth’s department store. The man felt sorry for her. He purchased snacks for her at the school cafeteria. And he allegedly admitted that he secretly masturbated while she waited in line.

The unidentified male was questioned by authorities less than 48 hours after Monique’s disappearance. He signed a typewritten statement. The individual was never charged in connection with her case due to a lack of evidence, but some officials believe he was involved in some manner. The man, who does not have a criminal record, maintains his innocence and claims that portions of his statement were fabricated by investigators.

Graniela and Monique relocated to Albany from New York City, New York in the late 1980’s. This was after a murder was committed in front of their former residence. Authorities looked into the possibility that someone harmed Monique because they believed she may have witnessed the crime. No evidence was discovered to support the theory.

Police also investigated Monique’s stepfather. He was imprisoned at the time of her disappearance. Authorities questioned him to see if he’d had any possible altercations with other inmates. That was in the event that someone may have abducted Monique to get revenge towards her stepfather. Investigators determined that his prison sentence was not connected to Monique’s disappearance.

Both Graniela and Monique’s stepfather died of AIDS-related causes after her disappearance. Foul play is possible in her case, which remains unsolved.

Appeal

Monique Pebbles Santiago has been missing for 29 years. Foul play is merely possible in her case? I’ll say that is probable. What 11 year old girl would walk out her life and never contact her family again? After all this time, police have never been able to locate Monique or figure out what happened to her. They have no suspects or even persons of interest. Something happened to Monique. What? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Monique Pebbles Santiago? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in her disappearance?

If you have any information, please contact the Albany Police Department (New York) 1-518-438-4000. You may contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: 1-800-843-5678. You may call 9-1-1 or your local police.
