PBSO to release suspect's name in missing girl's case

GREENACRES, FL (WFLX) - Twenty-six years ago this week, 8-year-old Christy Luna vanished near her Greenacres home. We expect to hear new details in a cold case that's heating up.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is expected to release the name of a suspect Tuesday at a press conference.

Christy's mother, meanwhile, maintains a billboard in her front yard with her daughter's photo from 26 years ago and a photo showing what she might look like today.

Christy disappeared Memorial Day weekend in 1984, when the 8-year-old and a friend walked from her Greenacres home to a corner store.

Investigators said Christy and her friend were lured into a nearby park bathroom by a man who said there were coins inside and they should go get them. Christy was never seen again.
