In October 2007, retired policewoman Kathy Gilleran received a call from Vienna, Austria, informing her that her 34-year-old son, Aeryn, was missing. Kathy immediately flew overseas to aid in the search for Aeryn, but upon arriving in Vienna, she was shocked to learn that the local police had no interest in pursuing the case.
Aeryn, a US Citizen, was living and working in Vienna. He was last seen on the 29th October 2007. He left his place of work, UNIDO at around 6pm on that date, and he was seen at the Kaiserbrundl Sauna in the centre of Vienna, where his belonging’s where later found. According to police reports, Aeryn left the Sauna at around 6:50pm. Aeryn has not been seen since.
Watch GONE on Investigation Discovery on Saturday, November 12 at 9p EP, and help find Aeryn!
UPDATES: Aeryn’s mother, Kathy, has commented below and answered some questions from readers. Also, the film makers have contacted me:
The response to the broadcast has been absolutely overwhelming and we’ve been very moved by the outpouring of support for Aeryn, Kathy, and their family.
GONE has been a labor of love, and it’s so deeply gratifying to see so many others caring as much about the case as we do.
Thank you so much for helping us, and thank you also to your readers who helped get the word out. As you mentioned on your blog, sometimes it’s the smallest piece of information that breaks a case, and that is what we hope for with GONE.
Warmest regards and deepest thank yous,
Gretchen & John Morning”
