Shane disappeared from the Martin Luther King Towers playground on Lexington Ave. in New York City on Aug. 10, 89.He was there with his mother who gave him permission to play with two other children. A ten year old girl and her five year old brother. A stranger came up to her and started a conversation, and when she looked back, her son was gone. The other two children were gone to but they appeared in the park a few minutes later. They told Shane's mother they had left Shane in the park. The man and both children were interviewed by police but with no results. Shane was never seen again. Another toddler,Christopher Dansby disappeared from the same park three months earlier. The cases were very much alike as Christopher was playing with the same two children as Shane. Both toddlers lived in the same apartment building, and disappeared on Thursday, at about the same time. Shane's parents still live in the same apartment building and his mother hopes he is still alive and will some day come home to her.


What Shane may look like today.



There are so many missing children throughout the country. So many parents who never know what happened and so many missing who never are found or get justice. With so many ways to get the information into so many hands it seems we should be working together to find help for all those who know the feeling of such a loss. This is our attempt to help. You will find missing children on this site and if you know something, please help.


This song was part of the Run Buddy Run fave among the kids. It was not made by the show or anyone involved with the show. I added some video to help with the entertainment value. Please forgive the static but this is a old record.

The attitude of CBS, and many others toward Run Buddy Run is, if it only lasted thirteen weeks it apparently was not any good anyway.  Obviously no one liked it so, no loss. For the shows fans there is a different answer. In the sixties, the television was a family gathering site. There was only one tv to a family and it was in the living room. Dad was the head of the house and made most the decisions on what would be watched. The show aired in primetime for family viewing, which may have been it's downfall. Some of the most popular shows of the time ran opposite it. The show fought for ratings with shows like I Dream Of Genie. Had the show been put in a timeslot with less popular shows it would have had time to build a following and then it could have been moved to a more competitive timeslot. If left where it was it needed more time to build a audience. First people had to be willing to turn the channel away from shows they knew they liked such as Gilligan and Lucy, both which had been running for some time and had a huge following, to view something they had no idea about. It is the opinion of many fans that it did not fail because no one liked it, it failed because no one saw it.  So then, the show was a total failure right?  Wrong, the show was a hit with the kids. For the families that did turn the channel the show became a instant success. For the fortunate kids who could get dad to give up the timeslot, Buddy's narrow escapes were a topic for the next days playground. In the short thirteen weeks it aired it became a kid fave, demanding such extras as its own comic book, and its own song, which came out on a 45. Even the most popular shows probably can't claim that honor.  For the poor kids who couldn't get the tv away from dad, they could only listen as the fortunate discussed the details.  So while fathers were standing around the watercooler talking about how good Genie looked in her harem outfit, the kids were standing around the water fountain arguing which thug was the best. In our school anytime some poor sole was told to go to the principles office, some smart classmate was bound to yell "Goodby Wendell'' and the class would snicker as the student was led out.
