Sarah Wondra: Suspect in 5-year-old boy’s disappearance made TikTok video in front of his missing persons flyer

An Idaho woman was arrested in connection with the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy in 2021, after social media videos revealed she had the child’s missing persons flyer pinned to her fridge in the months following his disappearance.

Sarah Wondra, 35, was apprehended over the weekend after investigators began digging up her backyard in Fruitland, northwest of Boise, in search of Michael Vaughan’s remains, according to police.Sarah Wondra: Suspect in 5-year-old boy’s disappearance made TikTok video in front of his missing persons flyer

Cops have been looking for the boy, nicknamed “Monkey,” since the night of July 27, 2021, when he vanished from his neighborhood.

Wondra — who police say doesn’t know the boy or his family — was taken into custody on a charge of failure to report a death.

“Our investigation determined Sarah Wondra may have had knowledge of Michael’s death and failed to report it,” Fruitland Police Chief JD Huff told local media.

“We do not believe she is the only person that has knowledge of this, and we will be seeking out those people who could possibly be connected.”

Following Wondra’s arrest, several of her TikTok videos surfaced, showing her filming unrelated videos about religion and living with diabetes.

Several of the videos, which were shot after Michael went missing, showed Wondra standing in front of a fridge with the boy’s missing persons flyer taped to it.

Huff said cops investigated more than 1,000 tips before one led them to Wondra’s property — just minutes from the missing child’s family home — last week.1.

“During the course of the investigation we received information the remains of Michael Vaughan might be found (behind the house) … as a result, we obtained a search warrant,” Huff told KTVB.

“We have not found anything yet, but we will continue to excavate in hopes of finding his remains.”

Huff said crews have already dug up most of the backyard and have been going as much as 3 to 4 feet deep.

No other details regarding Wondra’s alleged involvement in the boy’s disappearance have been publicly disclosed — and court documents related to the case have been sealed.

Police haven’t yet commented on Wondra and the missing persons flyer.

She is being held on a $500,000 bond ahead of her next court hearing on Nov. 21.
