Four years ago, during the afternoon of March 26, 2009, Avery Blakeley was playing in his aunt’s front yard trailer home in Malden, Washington. His aunt was planning to move so she along with Avery’s mother were bringing items outside and would check on him every several minutes. By 12:30PM Avery had vanished and after 20 minutes of searching in and around the trailer home they contacted the Police Department to file a missing persons report.

averyblakeleyDozens of volunteers immediately helped with local searches. Police couldn’t find any evidence to indicated a kidnapping or foul play however, that theory isn’t entirely ruled out. They believe it’s possible that the missing toddler drowned in Pine Creek, which runs by the aunt’s trailer. They found his slippers on the bank of the creek and at the time the creek was very high with debris filled muddy/murky water which made it extremely difficult to search for a body. However, dive teams went out and searched for Avery’s body again after the creek’s water level receded, and conditions improved, to no avail. One would think that if he had drowned she would have been found by now.

Both photos were taken less than a year before Avery went missing

Police assume Avery is no longer alive however, a body has never been located.

Avery turned 6 this past December. An age progressed photo hasn’t been created as of today.
