Mark Himebaugh was only 11 years old when he went missing from Middle Township, New Jersey in 1991. It’s as if Mark vanished into thin air. Although there are many witness statements about Mark’s whereabouts that day, the only physical clue found was Mark’s left shoe abandoned on the beach. Mark’s mother Maureen is begging the public to keep sharing his case and is hopeful that new DNA testing will finally break the case.
