'Leaving no rock unturned,' FBI, police suspect couple took missing toddler to Mexico

Seattle, Washington — Law enforcement officials are continuing their search for 2-year-old Seraya Aung Harmon. She was last seen on May 29 with her father Aaron Daniel Aung, 21, of Moscow, Idaho.

Aung is 5' 9" and 135 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

The Seattle branch of the FBI is also investigating, and has stated Aung may be traveling with Nadia Cole, 21. Cole, who's originally from Pullman, was reported missing to the Port of Seattle Police Department on the same day as Seraya. Video surveillance shows Cole at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on May 29. Police described her as White, with blonde hair and light eyes.

Initially, police said they thought Aung traveled to Montana since he was seen buying camping gear and a Montana map book in Moscow. However, the investigation later revealed that Aung and Cole likely traveled to Mexico in a black 2014 Cadillac XTS with Idaho license 1L5147U.

Seraya’s mother, Samara Harmon has publicly expressed her concern, and spoke to TV host Nancy Grace about the manipulation she said she experienced in her relationship with Aung.

Grace asked Harmon, “You stated that you were the one that wanted a public pickup drop-off swap for your own safety. Why?”

“Because of the situations that he’d said - he stated things in a way that would manipulate me or kind of make me think one way when he meant it another. Times when he would kind of try to weaponize her,” Harmon shared. “I wanted video surveillance of every time she'd been dropped off, every time I had handed her over, so he couldn't try and claim something that I knew to be false.”

In addition to manipulation, Harmon said Aung made her afraid.

“There's been a lot of things he'd said throughout our relationship about how he had connections so I'd never get to see her again. And he would bring things up like that all the time to try and use them against me and make me not want to say anything about our relationship or any of my fears or concerns,” said Harmon.

On June 5, the Pullman Police Department obtained a warrant for Aung's arrest for custodial interference 1st degree for unlawfully retaining custody of Seraya after she was scheduled to be returned to Harmon in Pullman on June 3.

“They're leaving no rock unturned. They can't afford to make any theories at the moment, so they are following the evidence. They are searching high and low across the globe, not in just one singular area. They have spread out agents far and wide, searching every nook and cranny to find her.”

Anyone with information should contact the Pullman Police Department at or the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5324) or
