Name: Peter John Enright.
Died: 1968 or 1969.
Age at death: 3-4.
Cause of death: Homicide (Missing, presumed dead; murder reported by witness).
Location: Inala, Brisbane, Australia.

Details:
Peter was born June 17, 1965, the fourth of eleven children. He disappeared when he was three or four years old, and his disappearance was never reported. To the younger siblings, Peter became only a story.

In 2020, when Peter would have been 55 years old, someone finally came forward and reported that Peter had been killed and his body hidden or buried on his mother’s property. Peter’s father had died in 2018, but his mother was still alive, and she was arrested.

Authorities are now searching her home for Peter’s remains.

Anyone who “lived in Polaris Street in the 1960s or 1970s, or anyone who knew the Enright family through other means”, should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-333-000.
