Where is Adam Joseph Herrman?

What would you do if your kid was missing?

Suppose he was 11 or 12. How long does it take before you call the police?

These adoptive parents never did.

Never.

They 'assumed' he was either homeless or had run away to be with his first family when he disappeared in 1999.

Funny thing though, they seem to have forgotten that assumption around 2005 when his older sister called to ask how he was doing.

His adoptive mother told her not to call anymore; she didn't want Adam to know he was adopted.

In 2002 though, they remembered him long enough to list him as a dependent on their bankruptcy papers.

Horrible

Long-missing boy is subject of search
kansascity.com — He came to his foster parents when he was about 2 and a few years later that family adopted him. And then, nearly 10 years ago, the boy disappeared when he was 11 or 12, while the adoptive family lived at a mobile home park in Kansas. After receiving a tip, Butler County authorities searched part of the mobile home park last week.

Update: Via When a child goes missing, another article titled 'One answer found in missing-boy case'

On Friday, Murphy said that investigators "did get an answer that we were looking for" during a search earlier this week of the Towanda mobile home park where Adam lived.

But Murphy stressed that it was only one among a number of answers that investigators are seeking. He wouldn't say more.


I'll be keeping an eye out for any updates between now and the press conference scheduled for tomorrow morning.

It seems that this child must no longer be alive. The adoptive parents tax advantaged deceptions are appalling in the least, yet their scumbag lawyer has the nerve to call Adam disturbed. What about the two younger siblings? This just infuriates me. I hope the book is thrown at the adopters. What can we do?

Nothing, and that's the hardest part. :(

Stuff like this happens more often then not, but EVERYONE chooses to look the other way and think nothing of it. I am, sadly, a victim of foster care and its dangers. If anyone wants to adopt a child, they should have the whole family, including the minors investigated for ANY wrong doing.
