Circumstances of Disappearance
Tyler Inman was last seen In Aberdeen, Washington on the night of December 21st 1982. He was last seen at his apartment in the 1300 block of east Madison Street. He and his sister were under the care of his mother’s boyfriend, Jeff Green, while their mother, Sherrie Inman, was out playing bingo.
Jeff left the apartment for 20 minutes to go pull a boat out of the Wishkah River nearby. Apparently, Tyler ran out of the apartment during this time and has never been seen since. He wasn’t reported missing until his mother arrived home at 10:20 pm.
During the time that Tyler left, a severe storm was taking place in the area. The storm blew winds of about 70 miles per hour and 2 people were killed as a result of the brutality of the storm. Authorities believed at the time that Tyler wandered into the river and drowned to death.
Some agencies state that Inman was last seen in his bedroom during the storm. It’s also been stated that authorities believe unknown individuals broke into the Inman home and abducted Tyler. This has not been confirmed and Tyler has not been located.
Tyler’s case remains unsolved. It’s is currently classified as a non family abduction.
