Sunday, April 7 marked the 30 year anniversary of the disappearance of Aaron Anderson.
22-month-old Aaron was last seen playing outside of his Pine City home on April 7, 1989. Pine County authorities initially believed he drowned in the Snake River which his yard backed up to.
However, Aaron's mother, Paulette Anderson, believes he was abducted.
An extensive search of the river revealed no evidence to support the theory that he drowned. Divers and searchers found no body or items of clothing. A bloodhound used by the Chisago County Sheriff's Office lead deputies away from the river and tracked Aaron's scent to the road in front of the house.
Paulette told KSTP that she believes Aaron is still alive, and she recently signed up for Ancestry.com with the hope that an adult aged Aaron has also signed up.
Aaron would now be 31 years old. He has dark hair, Points on the back of his ears, and a white birthmark on the lower right abdomen.
Pine County Sheriff Jeff Nelson says they have tracked down past tips in order to try and bring closure for the Anderson family. He asks that anyone with information contact their tip-line at (320) 629-3342.
Anyone with information can also contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
