Investigators with the Butler County Sheriff's Office, as well as volunteers and search dogs, searched the area along Whitewater River near Towanda on Saturday for any sign of Adam Herrman.
The 11-year-old was last seen in 1999. He was only recently reported as missing. His adoptive parents say he frequently ran away and were scared to report him missing. However, other family members suspect foul play and believe his adoptive parents were involved.
Butler County Sheriff Craig Murphy says crews were looking for any indentations in the ground where something may have been buried. They also had a group of pople from the WSU Anthropology Department to help sort out human and animal bones.
