Michael Vaughan Voices for Justice

    • True Crime

Michael Vaughan was only 5 years old when he went missing from his neighborhood in Fruitland, Idaho on July 27, 2021. After months of intense searches, scrutiny over whether an Amber Alert should have been issued, and even SB 1378, new legislation sparked by the case, what happened to Michael remains a mystery.
 
Although The Fruitland Police Department initially believed Michael likely just wandered away from his home, they now believe he was most likely abducted. No suspects have been named and Chief JD Huff with the Fruitland PD has been clear that his parents, Brandi Neal and Tyler Vaughan have been cooperative in the investigation.
 
But just days before this episode aired, the Fruitland PD announced that they do have several persons of interest in the case and are now on the lookout for a very specific potential witness. They also make it clear that unfortunately, not everyone has been cooperative in the investigation into what happened to Michael Vaughan.
 
Michael was last seen wearing a light blue Minecraft T-shirt, dark blue boxer briefs and size 11 flip-flops. He is a white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. When he went missing, he was 3 feet 6 inches tall and weighed about 50 pounds. Michael also responds to the nickname "Monkey."
 
As of recording this episode, the reward to information leading to Michael’s recovery has reached nearly $53,000.
 
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Fruitland Police dispatch at 208-642-6006 or to email findmichael@fruitland.org.
