Her parents never married and separated when Perry was 3.
Perry ran away from his house in the 2200 block of Southeast 37th Avenue near Laurelhurst Park, Southeast Portland, Oregon on
September 14 1990 after arguing with him and, saying she was going to her mother's home.
Perry's mother has legal custody of her, she became upset because he had told her to leave her mother's home and live with him.
Perry was reportedly seen hitchhiking a few days after her disappearance in Albany and at Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 near Wilsonville.
More than 8,000 fliers were distributed and Scuba divers searched the duck pond at Laurelhurst Park.
Perry's belongings later were found in front of the Kienow's Food Store at Southeast 39th Avenue and Division Street.
In August, a family friend, told police he'd killed the girl and dumped her body near Kelso, Washington.
Police found no sign of the girl's remains, and the man recanted his claim on national TV.
