Circumstances of Disappearance:
Marcus was abducted by his non-custodial father, Sergio Salerno Farina (photos and information below). He picked up Marcus up from the home of the baby's mother, Patricia Rose, ostensibly to take the child to the pediatrician. When he did not return with Marcus, she went to Sergio's apartment. She found all the rooms empty and the message, "Ha! Ha! Ha! You'll never find us. Merry Christmas!" written on a note which was stuck to a mirror. A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for Sergio Farina on December 12, 1991 and a FBI warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued for him on October 27, 1993. They may be in South America, possibly in Brazil, or may have traveled to Aquila, Abruzzi, Italy. Their whereabouts are unknown and this case remains unsolved.
