One autumn day in 1988, two little boys were playing together in their garden in Bogota, Colombia while their older brother watched from a second-story window. A family friend approached them and asked one of them, Jhonatan, to come with him, offering to buy him some candy.

His family didn’t see Jhonatan again for 32 years.

Juan Jimenez was 5 years old when he watched from the window as that man walked away with his little brother. Riddled with grief and guilt that he had failed to prevent his brother’s disappearance, he tried everything in his power to help his mother find Jhonatan. As an adult, Juan moved to the United States — where they believed Jhonatan had been taken — with the thought that even if his efforts to find his brother failed, at least he would be physically closer to him.
