  • Details of Disappearance
    Ahren was last seen at approximately 7:00pm at the McDonald's at Coal and Overland Road in Boise, Idaho.
    He had just dropped his young son off for the evening with the child's mother. Ahren had plans that evening and was going to pick up his son the next morning to continue their weekend visitation.

    The following day, Ahren failed to call to arrange a pick up time which was very unlike him. His last phone call was around 7:15.

    Barnard's family stated he is a dedicated father who would not have willingly abandoned his children. He also left behind his dog, cat, passport, vehicle (that was found in driveway) and all personal belongings.
    Ahren lived in Boise for 33 years, has many friends and associates and owns his own home. He has strong ties to the community. All leads in this case suggest possible foul play.
