Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case )


Ruben's stepfather was caring for him at the family's ranch along the Little Wood River in rural Shoshone, Idaho on the afternoon of February 23, 1997. Ruben was last seen sitting in their front yard and drinking his bottle. His stepfather went inside the house for a moment to retrieve something and when he returned, Ruben had disappeared.
Dogs traced Ruben's scent for 200 yards to the edge of the Little Wood River, and searchers found a child's footprint on the riverbank. Authorities searched the river several times looking for Ruben's remains, but found nothing. It's possible he was kidnapped and sold. His mother, who divorced Ruben's stepfather after the child's 1997 disappearance, believes his stepfather's family might have been involved in his case.
Ruben's case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd. Little evidence is available in his case.
