Paul Kitterman, 53, was at the Denver Broncos game with his son, Jarod Tonneson, and two friends last Thursday.
The seats were split: The father and son duo were sitting in a separate area.
“Paul and Jarod had never been to a game so we got some extra tickets,” Tia Bakke told KUSA 9News in Denver. She went to the game with the father and son and her boyfriend. They all drove together.
At half time Kitterman and his son got up.
Paul Kitterman waited outside as his son Jared Tonneson went to the restroom on the second floor of the stadium.
When Tonneson exited, his dad was gone.
Tonneson went to their seats in section 230. But he wasn’t there either.
A Denver police spokesman says detectives don’t suspect foul play but would not elaborate.
“He wouldn’t leave Jarod for all the money in the world,” Bakke said. “He had plans the next day. He had things he wanted to do.”
The family told police that Kitterman did not have a cell phone or credit cards on him and only $50 in cash.
