An excerpt from a 2010 KBOI news link below:

BOISE, Idaho – Foul play may be involved in a missing man case that’s six years in the making.

Ahren Barnard vanished without a trace at the age of 35. He was last seen at the McDonald’s at Cole and Overland Road Dec. 4, 2004.

“Investigators have gathered information over the course of this investigation and within the past few months that leads us to believe that Aaron Bernard’s disappearance was not his doing,” said Sgt. Mark Barnett of the Boise Police Violent Crimes Unit.

“We’ve thought for a long time that something has probably happened to Ahren since there’s been absolutely no trace of him in the past six years,” Barnett said. “But evidence increasingly suggests foul play. Ahren’s disappearance is suspicious, and that’s keeping this case a priority for detectives in the Violent Crimes Unit.”

Some close to the case have said missing man Jeramy Burt and Ahren Barnard had acquaintances in common in the Boise and Owyhee County area.

Contact the Boise Police Department or Crime Stoppers of SW Idaho if you have information about Barnard’s case.
