Details of Disappearance
Marjorie was last seen at Greenacres Grocery (now Belk's General Store) in her hometown of Greenacres City, Florida on May 27, 1984. She purchased cat food at approximately 3:00 p.m. The business is located just a few hundred feet from her home.

She may have stayed at the store until as late as 6:00 p.m. to play video games, or may have headed to a nearby park after leaving the store. She never returned home and has not been seen again. Her sister realized she was missing after she woke up at 8:30 p.m. She waited thirty minutes, then woke up their mother and told her Marjorie was gone.

Willis Rambo was considered a suspect in Marjorie's case for a time. He lived near her home with his brother, Charles "Chuck" Rambo. Marjorie had visited their house several times, and a witness had seen Charles give Marjorie money. After her disappearance, the Rambo brothers were charged with molesting Marjorie's six-year-old best friend. Authorities realized the girl was being abused when they interviewed her about Marjorie's disappearance.

Police searched the Rambo brothers' house and property after Marjorie went missing, but found no evidence to implicate them in her case. Both men denied any involvement in her disappearance.

Photos of Willis and Charles are posted with this case summary. They each pleaded guilty to lewd assault in the abuse of Marjorie's friend, and were sentenced to ten years' probation. In 1991, Willis was sentenced to four life terms in prison for sexually abusing his two stepdaughters. Charles now lives in Tennessee.

Victor George Wonyetye Jr. was a golf course worker in 1984 and is considered a suspect in Marjorie's case. A photo of him is posted with this case summary. He lived near her residence, he was reportedly seen outside the grocery store the day she disappeared, and he also attended a party in her neighborhood.

He had a criminal record dating back to the 1960s and has been convicted in the past of sexual assaults, among various other offenses. Wonyetye moved to New Hampshire shortly after Marjorie disappeared and is also a suspect in the 1984 disappearance of Tammy Lyn Belanger in that state.

Wonteye was never charged in connection with either child's case and no physical evidence connects him to the disappearances. He maintained his innocence and said he never even met Marjorie. Wonteye was sentenced to 75 years for burglary and indecent exposure in Florida in 1992; at the trial, prison inmates testified that he admitted killing Marjorie and Tammy. He was released from prison in 2012 and died eight months later.

In 2010, authorities named Delbert Mosher was another possible suspect in Marjorie's disappearance. He lived in the area at the time Marjorie disappeared, and was arrested three times for child molestation. He died in a Tennessee prison over twenty years after Marjorie went missing.

William Ferris lived near the home of one of Marjorie's friends at the time of her disappearance. The friend's home was just on the other side of the block from her route to the store, and Marjorie could have reached the house by cutting through yards. The friend wasn't at home that day, but if Marjorie had tried to visit her she would have passed Ferris's house. He was later arrested for child molestation in Virginia.

When questioned about Marjorie's disappearance, Ferris initially denied knowing her. In a later police interview he admitted he did know her, because his wife sometimes babysat for Marjorie's friend. According to Ferris's wife, one day when the two girls were playing together, Ferris said one of them was going to disappear someday. After Marjorie went missing, he said she would never be found. There is no evidence to implicate him in her case, however.

Marjorie's mother moved away after her daughter disappeared, but later moved back into the same house where she lived with Marjorie in 1984. She still lives there and still hopes for answers in her daughter's case. Foul play is suspected in Marjorie's disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

Detective still searching for answers 37 years after Greenacres girl disappeared
It's been 37 years since 8-year-old Christy Luna disappeared, but Detective William Springer has not given up.

"I know 2020 was a bad year," Springer said. "People didn't get to go out, people's lives changed. And I just want you to think about something. In 2020, when your life changed because of COVID, it was very upsetting. Jennie Johnson's (Luna's mother) life changed on May 27, 1984 and she has never been able to get back to a normal life."

"I'm back here in 2021 and ready to work. I want to get out there and follow up leads," Springer said. "I would appreciate any leads you can give us so that we can bring Christy home."
