A mother whose 3-year-old son disappeared from a swap meet in Nevada in 1986 was charged with murdering the toddler, according to reports.

60-year-old Amy Fleming was arrested in Florida on January 29.

Police have refused to say why they now suspect Fleming of murdering her son, whose body has never been found.

At the time, she and the boy's stepfather claimed the boy disappeared from Broad Acres Swap Meet in North Las Vegas on August 2, 1986.

At the time of the boy's disappearance, Amy and Lee Luster were awaiting trial on child abuse charges.

Fleming and Luster were suspected of being involved in Yo-Yo's disappearance at the time, but no formal charges were filed.

Missouri State senior Jarred Dixon came up with the ball and launched it from half-court, banking it in for the miracle win. Up two with 7.8 seconds remaining, Illinois State had to inbound the ball under its own basket.

At the time, the couple told police they believed the boy's father, Jean Pierre, took the child back to Haiti. Fleming, who moved to Florida from the Las Vegas area a year after her 3-year-old mysteriously vanished more than 30 years ago, has been arrested on a warrant charging her with killing the boy, authorities said Monday, Feb. 11, 2019. The Lusters were later charged with perjury in December 1986 after allegedly lying about their backgrounds, including where they lived and their occupations.

Francillon Pierre, meanwhile, is still classified as missing and the victim of a "non-family abduction" by the Charley Project, an organization that tracks missing persons cold cases, primarily in the United States.

A month after the boy went missing, Fleming and Luster scheduled a garage sale of the boy's toys to make money to relocate to Seattle, but they didn't go through with the sale after media reports, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

"We can't give out everything until it hits the courts, but more of what happened will become clear at the news conference", he said. The police were working the cold case for several months and "pieced several things together" in December that led to the arrest warrant, Las Vegas television station KSNV reported.

The boy was officially considered a missing person, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children featured him in 2011 in an age-progressed portrait showing what he might look like at age 29.

Fleming and Luster married and moved to South Florida in 1987, Leavitt said, and had no recent criminal record.
