Jon Michael Dabkowski (born November 11, 1970) was a boy who disappeared in 1982.
His nicknames are "Dabbo" and "Jonny."
Jon was last seen around half past five in the afternoon on January 14, 1982, in his hometown of Tarentum, Pennsylvania. He was in the company of his friend Gabriel Minarcin and they were walking towards Gabriel's house. The boys had finished dinner at Jon's residence minutes before and Gabriel's house was only three doors down the street. The boys never reached Gabriel's house and haven't been seen since.
Police believe that the boys may have fallen through thin ice near their residences and drowned, as they were last seen walking together near the Allegheny River. Footprints in the snow led to the riverbank, but there were no prints leading away from the river. An extensive search of the water turned up no evidence that anyone had fallen in.
Due to a lack of clues, their disappearances are classified as non-family abductions.
A man stole his identity in 1998. Police determined that he was not involved in the disappearance of the two boys.
