There is sure to be much speculations as to why the family of Adam Herrman did not report him missing. His adoptive mother, Valerie Herrman, said she didn’t report him missing because she feared authorities would remove his siblings. Some believe it may have more to do with the approximately $58,800 the family collected from the state prior to his 18th birthday. Other possible explanations may be found in this publication.

Runaway/Thrownaway Children: National Estimates and Characteristics

NISMART stands for the National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrownaway Children. These studies were undertaken in response to the Missing Children’s Assistance Act (Pub. L. 98–473), which requires that the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) conduct periodic studies to determine the number of U.S. children reported missing and the number of children recovered during a given year. NISMART consists of several complementary studies designed to estimate the size and nature of the Nation’s missing children problem.

Adam Herrman wan’t reported missing for nine years. You might be surprised searching the reported missing children listed at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), to learn that of the total 2,712 reported missing children, approximatley 30-40% of them are over 18-years-old.

A child continues to be listed if they went missing prior to turning 18-years-old. There are other special circumstances such as in the disappearance of 21-year-old  Donna Jou.
