What happened to McConney?
Police believe McConney was kidnapped by a man initially “suspected” to be named Hunter Fox. Officials later provided an update, revealing that the individual is 26-year-old Arizonan Aaron Zemen. His other name is Tadashi Kojima.
Zemen is operating a white 1998 Toyota Avalon with a dented grill and temporary registration #22225NP from Arizona.
Zemen, according to the police, talked to McConney online before the teen left his house late on Monday night to meet the man.
Authorities believe they may be headed to Arizona or Texas, according to Aaron Zemen (also known as “Hunter Fox” or “Tadashi Kojima”).
A close friend of McConney’s mother, Beth Cooper, recalls the 13-year-old as a handsome, brilliant young man.
“He comes from a very loving household, safe environment, he’s grown up with two loving parents his entire life,” she said. “This just isn’t one of those scenarios in that he’s trying to run away from a bad home. He was manipulated by someone pretending to be someone they were not.”
Police requests Public assistance:
Zemen, according to the police, interacted with McConney online before the teen left his house to meet him.
According to Lt. Travis Lyman, McConney’s parents informed the Layton Police on Tuesday morning that their son had been missing throughout the night.
“The fact that the child is 13, if he left with this adult without the parent’s consent, that’s kidnapping,” he said.
According to Lyman, McConney’s parents had informed the police that their son had recently been speaking with the 26-year-old suspect.
“It does become our highest priority when a child is missing like this,” he said. “We’re doing everything we can on every front to try and find him.”
Cooper reported that Evan brought his passport when Zemen requested him to. Police say the pair may be anywhere, even though they could be in Texas, Arizona, or Utah.
“You have an older man posing to be someone else, confusing 13-year-old minor things that he’s not aware of in life,” said Cooper.
“He doesn’t understand yet, why when somebody asks you to leave your house, you don’t go.”
Anyone with information regarding either of the two people’s whereabouts is urged to call the Layton Police Department at 801-497-8300 or dial 911.
Amber alert has been cancelled as the teen Evan McConney has been found safe. Also, the Suspect Aaron Zeman was arrested by the Layton Police.
