Adam Herrman Wiki – Biography
Adam Herrman disappeared as a child from the Kansas home of his adoptive parents back in 1999, although, bizarrely, authorities didn’t realize he was missing for years. Now a man named Stephen Smith is claiming that he’s Adam Herrman, and he’s opened a Twitter account to disseminate those claims. There are those who doubt the man’s claims are legitimate, however.
Doug and Valerie Herrman didn’t report their adoptive son missing for years. Authorities, who eventually got a tip that Adam had vanished years before, are looking into the Twitter account. The boy disappeared when he was 11 years old in Kansas.
According to KFDI-TV, the man on Twitter claims that he “had been trafficked under the name Stephen Smith. He provided a social security number and said he is willing to go through DNA testing to prove his identity.”

Authorities didn’t start looking for him until 2008, when they received a tip.In 2018, Valerie Herrman spoke to KWCH-TV and claimed Adam ran away. “When he said he wasn’t coming back I told him good. I was upset…and we say mean things when we get mad, things you don’t mean,” Valerie, then living in Oklahoma, told the television station. She didn’t tell the police then, she said, because she was scared she would lose her other kids.

“He was an average student, but teachers could see the potential for him to do well for himself. Adam’s closest childhood friends remember another side to Adam. They describe him as a young man who was his sister’s protector when she got picked on at school because of her special needs. He would never leave her side until it was time to be in class. Adam liked spending time outdoors with his siblings and going to the lake to camp and fish with his family.”

According to KWHC-TV, the Butler County Sheriff’s Department is looking into the Twitter account that “claims to be missing Adam Herrman.”
The Twitter account, using the handle @herrman_adam, reads, “MISSING SINCE 1999. Oppressed but never silent. SILENCE IS A LETHAL WEAPON.” It was created in February 2020.
The office told the television station that it’s investigating the claims by the Twitter page. There’s no verification at this point that it belongs to the real Herrman, however.
The page has made incendiary claims, tweeting, “I have been mutilated …My freckles were removed, my mouth and anus has been cleaned with alcohol and peroxide many times. I have abundant stomach scars and the birthmark is visible sometimes, but now is mostly a red line of scar tissue.”
Another tweet reads, “I would like to advise that I have stated to all officials I want federal protection and we are seeking political asylum at this point. #AdamHerrman #BreakingNews #SilenceIsALethalWeapon #CatholicChurch #FreeAdam #Kansas #MissingSince1999 #NeverReported #NeverFound.”
Smith also wrote, “I am not ‘crazy’ I am dedicated to my freedom and have had to be for 30 years to come forward now. I have been prescribed Adderall for over 4 years by Dr. Michelle Louis, originally diagnosed by Michael A. Baker of Bel-Aire at the time #AdamHerrman #StandWithAdam.”
