Details of Disappearance

Aaron was last seen playing in his family's yard at approximately 4:30 p.m. on April 7, 1989 in Pine City, Minnesota. His mother left him unattended for a couple of minutes and he disappeared. He has never been seen again and an extensive search of the area turned up no signs of him.

Aaron's family's residence bordered the Snake River; authorities believe the child may have fallen in the water and drowned. However, Aaron's parents believe their son was abducted. They have criticized the police investigation into the child's disappearance; investigators admitted they focused on the drowning theory and ignored over twenty leads pointing to other possibilities.

Aaron's parents moved to St. Paul, Minnesota after his disappearance and continue to search for their son. His case remains open and unsolved.
