Search for Adam Herrman finds no evidence

It breaks my heart to see the smile on his face, despite the obvious mark on his forehead.

TOWANDA - Investigators didn't find any evidence today in their third search along the Whitewater River for remains of Adam Herrman, the 11-year-old boy who disappeared 10 years ago, Butler County Sheriff Craig Murphy said.

About 20 people, including investigators, anthropological experts and search dog teams, took part, Murphy said.

Adam disappeared in 1999 from a Towanda mobile home park where he lived with his adoptive parents, Doug and Valerie Herrman. They have said that he ran away and they didn't report it. Authorities discovered his disappearance late last year when his older adoptive sister brought her concerns about him to authorities.

The next planned search -- of woods south of the mobile home park -- is Feb. 21, Murphy said.
