    WA - Tyler Jennings Inman, 3, Aberdeen, 21 Dec 1982

    Found this case on Charley Project
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/i/inman_tyler.html

    Tyler Inman has been missing since 1982. On Charley, it says he ran out of his house during a storm and disappeared. I decided to google him and found him on NamUs. There, it says he was last seen in his bed. Just wondering if anyone knows anything more on this case. Thought the differing stories were odd.

    NCMEC also says he was last seen in bed: http://www.missingkids.com/missingki...archLang=en_US



    Tyler's name came up when we were looking at another case. It seems there was a string of 2-3 year olds missing in the Northwest in the early 80s, particularly Idaho, Washington, and Montana. Not saying they are all related, but I think it's possible. It was discussed on Jason Cannon's thread here: [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87325"]ID ID - Jason Cannon, 2, Boise, 1983 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]

    Newspaper report (archived google news)

    24 DEC 1982

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...er-inman&hl=en

    That article tells us that Tyler had been left in the apartment alone by his Mother's Boyfriend.

    17 MAY 1984

    http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...er-inman&hl=en

    It says in the article above that Tyler's Mother left her two children in the care of her boyfriend. That there had been a babysitter earlier in the evening but Boyfriend relieved the babysitter at 8 PM.

    The first article tells us that the boyfriend "reportedly" left Tyler unattended (does not mention second child) and went to retrieve a boat from the nearby Chehalis River during a violent wind and rain storm.

    Hm, more things that make me wonder. In the Charley account, it says he "ran out of the house". To know that he ran out of the house, it seems that someone must have seen him do so. Thanks for those articles.

    Possibly. It is also possible that that was what was in the police report many years ago and was either related by BF (explaining how it came to be that when the BF returned home - or it may have been the Mother that returned home first and found one child there and Tyler gone, why Tyler was not in the residence).

    I'm not sure that I would attribute it to an eye witness as of yet because IMHO if an eye witness saw him run out of the house they would have followed him and collected him. I don't imagine Tyler could have gotten far in a violent wind and rain storm, or far enough to outrun an eyewitness at the age of 2.

    It is unknown if the second child reportedly there was older or younger than Tyler.

    JMHO.

    Here says they believe someone broke into the house and abducted Tyler from his bedroom. Wonder if he actually ran from the home, or was seen running from the home and the person who was trying to abduct him. Or did someone break into the house and actually take him.
