Authorities are once again trying to solve the case of a 2-year-old boy who went missing from his Niagara County home more than 30 years ago.

Russell Mort hasn't been seen since May of 1982, when he disappeared from the backyard of a Wheatfield trailer park home. He would be 35 years old today.

The FBI and the Niagara County's Sheriff Office Thursday said they are seeking new leads in the cold case. They want to speak with anyone who lived at, or had knowledge of, the Lynch Trailer Park at the time, in an effort to reconstruct the community. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI or 438-3393.
