Burdynski's mother told authorities that he left the family's residence in the 4300 block of 40th Place in Brentwood, Maryland at approximately 15:30 on May 24, 1993. He was riding his red and white 1950 series Schwinn bicycle at the time. Burdynski was planning to bike to meet an adult friend. The friend stated that Burdynski never arrived by 16:00, but witnesses said that they saw the child in front of his mother's residence around that time. Burdynski was last seen biking around the neighborhood at approximately 20:30 that evening. He has never been heard from again.
Burdynski's bicycle was missing its rear fender and had a spare rim tied around the handlebars at the time of his disappearance. His father and the friend searched for Burdynski the following morning and discovered the rim three blocks from the family's residence. The rim was located near a local tennis court. There was no sign of Burdynski at the scene and his bicycle has never been recovered.
Three men linked to a child pornography venture were suspected but never charged. Burdynski's mother said her son visited one of the men's homes with two of his friends. Authorities said they believe the three men sexually abused two of Burdynski's friends a week before Burdynski disappeared. Those men were convicted of child abuse unrelated to Burdynski's case.
