Details of Disappearance
Adagio was last seen in June 2018. He was homeschooled and lived with his father, Gerald">
, on a farm near Nevada City, California. They left the farm on June 2, and this is the last time anyone saw Adagio.

Gerald set sail from Goleta Beach, California on June 7. There was a possible planned stop in San Diego, California. The trip to Hawaii should have taken three to six weeks. Gerald's ex-wife and his family became concerned when they didn't hear from him or Adagio within five weeks, and contacted the Coast Guard, but they had no information about the boat so there was little the Coast Guard could do.

The pair apparently never arrived in Hawaii. They were supposed to fly back to San Diego on September 1 and had already purchased tickets, but never made the flight.

It's possible Gerald and Adagio perished at sea, but Adagio's mother, who divorced from Gerald in 2013, believes her son may be alive and that Gerald may have taken him and disappeared voluntarily. Their cases remain unsolved.
