73 Days Ago This 5-Year-Old Disappeared From His Home And The Police Are Asking For Help Identifying These People They Want To Speak To: Where Is Michael Joseph Vaughan?

“We are also seeking assistance with the identification of the driver of a 2010-2011 model year, blue, Dodge Avenger also seen leaving the area on SW8th, but immediately turning right and headed south on South Whitley Drive.”

Police are also interested in talking to two people that were close to the splash pad in Crestview Park on the night that Michael vanished.

“The first individual was a male adult with dark hair and facial hair, wearing dark colored shorts, no shirt, seen jogging on the sidewalk of SW8th St. near Crestview Park at around 6:15 pm,” the Fruitland Police Department continued.

The second is a male adult with dark hair, wearing a white t-shirt and black shorts seen walking off of Sw8th St., down into the park area past the splash pad, towards the lower drainage behind the neighborhoods.”

The Fruitland Police Department stated that the people they are hoping to locate and talk to are in no way persons of interest in Michael’s disappearance, nor are they considered suspects in the case.

Instead, they think that these individuals might be able to provide them with information to help figure out the series of events that happened that night, or they might have a key piece of information that leads to Michael’s whereabouts.

Authorities are very interested in speaking to anyone else who might have seen something suspicious on the day of July 27th in the vicinity of SW9th St., Washington Avenue, SW8th St., and Cornwall Way from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

If you have any information that you think might help find Michael, or if you know where he is, the Fruitland Police Department is asking that you call them at 208.642.6006 Ext 0, or email them at

There is currently a $40,000 reward being offered in the hopes of locating Michael.
