On the afternoon of September 19, 1993, 28 year old Salvador Ramirez, or Sal as was known to loved ones, attended a family gathering at his brothers home in Yonkers, New York after dropping his mother off at JFK Airport. After the gathering, he played some soccer and then left to drive to Elmsford, New York, where he was to collect his two-year-old daughter from his estranged wife's home. A friend saw him driving in that direction but Sal was never seen again.
That was over twenty-five years ago. He has long been described as a man who lived for his baby daughter, had no reason to disappear and showed no signs of mental distress.
If you have any information regarding Sal’s disappearance, please contact the Yonkers Police Department at 914-377-7731.
