    Details of Disappearance

    Aaron was last seen in Keota, Iowa on March 16, 1992. He didn't have a history of getting into trouble, but police believe he stole a vehicle which was later found abandoned on the Kewash Nature Trail. There was no sign of Aaron at the scene and he has never been heard from again. Police believe he left of his own accord. For unclear reasons, he wasn't officially listed as missing until April 30, 1993, thirteen months after he disappeared. Aaron left behind his parents and three siblings; one of his sisters died in 1999. Few details are available in his case.
