IL - Erich Alley, 19, Braidwood, 30 Dec 2009
19 Jan 10
Erich Alley, a 19-year-old graduate of Reed-Custer High School, was last seen by his father as he left their Braidwood home on Dec. 30. Steve Alley said his son seemed to just be headed outside with two friends for a moment, but he never came back to the house. Erich left the house wearing only a lightweight jacket and street shoes, and left his keys and boots behind on a night when it was beginning to snow.
Since the story appeared in The Coal City Courant on Jan. 13, police identified the two people who were with Erich the last time he was seen. But the investigation has revealed little else about the teen's disappearance.
"It is our understanding that Erich was under the influence of alcohol and other drugs prior to his disappearance, or at least the investigation has uncovered information leading us to believe that he was under the influence of various drugs," Myers said.
Brown said the police told her Erich and the two boys he was with the night of his disappearance may have been drinking and taking sleeping pills. According to Brown, the police said that at some point in the evening, the three separated, but Erich's friends were too impaired to clearly remember what happened and in what order.
"The officer told me that they were too messed up to know the time and place, and they went in three different directions," Brown said.
Compounding the situation for Brown is the fact that Erich already takes medication for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Brown said her son takes amphetamines for ADD, and is fearful of what combining his prescription medication with sleeping pills may have done to her son.
Erich is about 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with short brown hair and blue eyes. He wears black wire rim glasses and is of slight build. He was last seen wearing a black jacket. Brown also thinks it's possible that her son was wearing a pair of limited edition sneakers with a design featuring punk rock group "The Sex Pistols." Brown said she bought the shoes for Erich at a store in Hollywood, and he often wore them.

The search for a missing Braidwood teenager ended tragically Monday, when the body of 19-year-old Erich Alley was discovered in a ditch along Bergera Road at Stacy Court in Braidwood.
According to Braidwood acting Police Chief Brandon Myers, a resident out for a walk saw Erich's body and called police. Myers said the investigation as to how Erich died is ongoing, but at this point, there's still no indication of foul play.
Rest in Peace Erich.
