|Missing for||39 years|
Nicole Lynn Bryner was a toddler who disappeared from Pennsylvania in 1982.
Nicole's mother claimed that she disappeared from a shopping cart when she looked away briefly, but nobody remembered seeing Nicole in the store that day.
In 1986, a man who was the boyfriend of Nicole's mother at the time confessed to killing her. He said she had died after he slapped her for biting his toe, and so he and Nicole's mother covered up her death by saying she was abducted. He was charged for her murder in 2006. He was later convicted of a lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter.
