From Unsolved Mysteries Wiki:
Real Name: Malakia Zali Logan
Nicknames: Kia Logan
Location: Greenwood, South Carolina
Date: May 15, 1988
Date of Birth: August 1, 1979
Weight: 60 lbs.
Marital Status: Single
Characteristics: African-American female, Born with two holes in her heart
Details: On May 15, 1988, Malakia Logan and her sister were playing in a park near their apartment. At around 8:15pm, Malakia left the park on her bicycle and vanished while heading back home. Her bike was later found near the apartment office. Malakia's case remains unsolved.
Suspects: None known
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the January 24, 1990 episode. The case was featured with three other missing children cases: Leticia Hernandez, Jessica Gutierrez, and David Borer.
Results: Unresolved. In 1990, Malakia's remains were found on a U.S. Forest Service property. However, they were not positively identified until 1998, ten years after she vanished. Charles Wade Hampton was charged with her murder, abduction, and sexual misconduct in November of 2002. However, the charges against him were later dropped.
Thoughts? Despite this being the murder of a 8-year old girl, I cannot find anything to suggest that Malakia's case was aired on America's Most Wanted as well.
Also, this is technically still an unsolved case. So I'm assuming Greenwood P.D. would still accept tips and/or perhaps try your local police or crime stoppers line if you have information.
