5 Years After Tropical Storm Irene, Family of Missing Teenager Still Holds Onto Hope

Marble Arvidson

Five years after a Vermont teenager walked out of his home on the eve of Tropical Storm Irene and was never seen again, his family remains hopeful they can find out what happened to him.

Marble Arvidson was 17 when he left his Brattleboro home on Aug. 27, 2011, with a man who appeared to be in his 20s saying he'd be back in half an hour. He was reported missing the next day when the storm was inundating Vermont.

Marble's aunt, Patricia Kittredge, says she's heard stories her nephew got into a fight. She says somebody knows what happened to him.

She says a child shouldn't be able to disappear into thin air.

Kittredge is planning to distribute an age-enhanced photo to show what Marble would look like today.
