From Unsolved Mysteries Wikia:
Real Name: Matthew Chase
Location: Los Angeles, California
Date: June 8, 1988
Details: Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Chase vanished shortly after he used an ATM in Los Angeles, California. A close-up analysis of it showed a person next to him. Police believed that he may have been withdrawn a large amount of cash in an attempt to alert someone in the bank for help. His car was found three weeks later. Several people claimed they met him at local homeless shelters shortly after his disappearance; this instilled hope in the hearts of his family and friends.
Unfortunately, his body was found three months later in nearby Pasadena. His killer and the man next to him in the ATM surveillance footage remain unknown, but it is presumably the same person.
Suspects: No suspects have been named in this case. Although a bandana found in Matthew's car suggests he may have fallen victim to gang members. Two composites have been made of the abductor.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the December 21, 1988 episode. According to TV Guide, it was originally scheduled to air on the November 23, 1988 episode, but it was postponed.
Results: Unresolved. Matthew's killer has not been caught and his case remains unsolved.

Thoughts? Matthew's still unsolved murder has never been aired on America's Most Wanted to the best of my knowledge but I am placing his case in the Unsolved on tv section since, as noted above, it has been aired on Unsolved Mysteries.
