Search Goes Nation-wide for Missing Kan. Boy

EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities are launching a nationwide search for a Kansas boy who disappeared nearly a decade ago.

Sheriff Craig Murphy said investigators have found no trace of Adam Herrman since he disappeared in 1999 from the mobile home park in Towanda where he lived with his adoptive parents. He was 11 at the time.

Murphy says a search of the empty lot where the mobile home once stood gave investigators one answer they sought, but he did not elaborate. He says no human remains were found.

His adoptive parents, Doug and Valerie Hermann, did not report the child as missing. Murphy says the family is cooperating.

Murphy says investigators do not know what happened to Adam. They are asking him or anyone who may have information to contact the Butler County sheriff's office.
