    Thinking of this little boy, he reminds me of someone special to me, I have a special place in my heart for him.
    Any thoughts on his case?
    I have noticed there are many little boys in the area who have vanished into thin air, thought to have died from exposure (more so than in other states from what I have seen). I do not know if that is because of the land scaping in MN or what, but it is quite odd.
    What strikes me as odd is that when Kevin vanished, his spaniel puppy, Flash, went with him. Kevin was never seen again, and neither was the dog. Now, if Kevin had wandered away into the wilderness near their home and died of exposure, why would the dog not come back? He couldnt have gone too far from where he vanished at, he was just a toddler. And dogs are very smart, usually they would be able to find there way home.
    I find the fact the dog did not come home and has not been found to this day a significant factor because in my mind it adds to the stranger abduction theory. I have no idea as to why this child would be taken, but if he wandered away and died of exposure, the dog would have been found. I think someone took this little boy and the dog. I believe this little boy was taken, I do not believe he wandered off.
    His mother stated he also had a habit of taking off his diaper, no matter where he went. From all the searches they did, they never came across any diaper. Could this factor also contribute to the abduction theory? I think so!

    And fellow sleuthers, I need your help! On May 21, 1984, Cheryl Ann Peters left her ROchester, MN home with just a bit of cash and a bag of clothes. She was nearsighted. She hitched a ride to the East Side Truck Stop in Albert Lea, MN. This is where she was last seen. I know for a fact she has been missing since Nov 1989. She was included in an article written about Kevin Ayotte, and I wanted to research more about this 15 yr old missing girl, but i cant find anything on her. I found one lil news article, and thats it. She is not listed, or mentioned anywhere. And in the little article she was mentioned in, they said her face appeared on bags and milk cartons everywhere. I have tried searching her as homicide or found, and I have not found anything! I want to know what happened to this girl! Was she found? Still missing? Could she be blue earth jane doe? If she is still missing, i'd like to do search UIDs. If anyone knows how to find out what the status of her case is, PLEASE let me know! Thanks

    It freaks me out a little that I lived within a very few miles of both Kevin and Jacob Wetterling at the times of their disappearances. But what bothers me most is that I was a college student at Bemidji State, beginning my junior year there when Kevin disappeared. I was well-informed, reading newspapers daily, waking to the local radio station and watching the evening newscasts. I don't recall hearing anything about his disappearance. That sickens me. Was it because the local authorities just assumed he just walked away? The college (and a tech college and bible college nearby) would be great sources for manpower to go traipsing through the woods and fields. That seems like a no-brainer to me. If the call went out on campus for searchers, HUNDREDS of kids would have headed out to help.

    And living about 8 miles from JW's abduction site, as a young man, planning on having children soon, I was (and am) deeply following any information about it. I had a god-son, almost the same age, and it made me so scared of something like that. I remember other cases being reported on, but again, I never heard anything about Kevin's case. I still followed news information from Bemidji and my ex-in-laws (my outlaws?) lived there. So you'd think if Kevin's case got any media coverage, I would have heard. It saddens me to think that his case didn't get much attention. And I'll throw in a comment about the Paynesville pedophilia cases preceding Jacob's abduction. Those were not widely reported in the St. Cloud Times newspapers or the local radio stations. I honestly think that they and the law enforcement were more worried about creating panic, instead of alerting the public to the obvious danger there. It is a really conservative area there. I think they were more concerned about driving away prospective new residents from the areas. That entire tri-county area was exploding with construction and new population. Unfortunately, the nearest TV stations were in the Twin Cities and they rarely reported on news outside of their metro area at that time.

    My own thoughts on Kevin's case, is that he probably did just walk off. The terrain of the area is very rural, swampy, the weather could be cold (obviously I don't have that specific weather data for that day), he would succumb easily. To those that use the family dog's disappearance as a sort of indicator that he was kidnapped, it could be, but only to an extent. The dog certainly would have followed him. But we didn't have instant media coverage back then, no internet to post a picture of a lost or found dog to. Depending on the age of the dog, it may not have found its way home. Or farmers or hunters could have found that dog and took it into their own home. If they weren't aware of Kevin's case, they may have just kept it. There are lot of lower-income people who would have kept the dog and leave it at that. Or if someone did find it, they may have not said anything, fearing that they would be suspected in the kidnapping. But I will also say, there are a lot of "backwoods" weirdos up in that vicinity. The parking lots of the off-sale liquor stores would be busy after the assistance checks arrived in the mail. In my 4 years there, I saw many people who I would not want to see in the middle of the night, out on some dark, country road, if I had a flat tire. So you just never know....

    Good find. It does sound like he just wandered off, then.

    In Minnesota, there are black bears, grey wolves and mountain lions. One of them could have taken the boy out of the search area. Or he could have just wandered further than expected and drowned in the swamp :(

    Paynesville was in the papers. Lots of info. And Kevin was as well.
