GROVE, OK.--- A Grand Lake couple hopes a $50,000 reward will help prompt new information in the disappearance of their adoptive son, who was last seen in 1999. Adam Herrman was only 11 years old when he was last seen in Towanda, Kansas. His disappearance wasn't reported until 2008. His adoptive parents, Doug and Valerie Herrman, said they thought Adam ran away and they didn't report his disppearance for fear they would lose custody of their other children.
Now an anonymous donor is offering a $50,000 cash reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Adam. His parents have since moved to Grove and are considered "persons of interest" in their son's disappearance. They were convicted in 2011 of adoption related fraud, served short prison sentences and were released.
