Despite a $50,000 reward for information about Adam Herrman, the missing person case remains colder than ever.

The Butler County Sherriff's Office said the reward, offered two weeks ago by a anonymous donor, has not generated any new leads. Herrman was 11 years old and living with a family in Towanda when he disappeared in 1999. But his adoptive parents never reported it, and Herrman wasn't officially listed as a missing person until late in 2008.

Valerie and Doug Herrman continued to collect monthly care checks from the state, and served prison time after pleading guilty to theft charges.

Butler Sheriff Kelly Herzet said Herrman’s adoptive parents now live in Oklahoma.
