Find Missing Kristian Burnstad! It was February 7, 2017 in Enumclaw, Washington State. A friend had dropped Kristian Burnstad off near the local Krain restaurant. And Kristian had some of his own belongings with him. These also were dropped off. It was 1:30 A.M. and at this point Burnstad was last seen. Days later, most of Burnstad’s belongings were found. At the same time, his mother was walking on the property. Reportedly, Kristian’s family have not “searched” for him. Initially, I myself was suspicious and I hoped this was untrue.

What Really Happened?

What the parents told the husband-wife tea answers some questions. On February 6, Kristian came home. There was an altercation. Kristian was described as not being in good condition. And so he left. On February 6, Kristian came back to get possessions and then drop them off. He had hugged his mother and left. Supposedly, his friend, given the name of Ryan, had dropped him off. A few days later, his mother saw a bunch of belongings. These included four backpacks. There was no cell phone, as he did not have one at the time. It has been claimed that Ryan dropped him off at 1:30 P.M. February 7. But his parents stated that he never came home. Kristian would have have knocked or found a way to get in.

The Parents

People have suggested to Kristian’s parents that someone in jail claimed that Kristian overdosed and that people panicked and dumped his body in the woods. According to the husband-wife team, Kristian’s parents are truly heartbroken. The pain in their eyes had brought the husband-wife team to tears. They are really grateful that people want to help.

On November 5, the administrator of Finding Kristian Burnstad, the Facebook page, posted. It is about tips and leads received.

I’m going to give the updates that I can give.
People said they saw Kristian in Bonney Lake at smoke shops. I went to all 4 yesterday with fliers but no one had seen him. I stopped people walking, talked to homeless people, and asked people on bikes to stop. No one had seen him. I went to a BL address I saw online for him but that wasn’t it.
Another tip said to check enumclaw library, Runlands and the gazebo. I did but again, no luck.
People in Bonney lake and enumclaw said they’ve seen this on Facebook so thank you all for getting the word out there!
Someone is saying he’s in auburn and I have not gone there yet. Is anyone free to do that?
That’s all I can say for now. But if ANYONE is interested in sharing the missing person flier and the $500 reward flier, please let me know! Share on Facebook and then please hand them around or hang them at your work if you can. ❤️

After reading the November 1, 2017 update, it has answered some questions about Kristian’s parents. Not all families have the resources or social connections to get the word out about their loved ones. But it’s a positive sign that they are allowing their son’s supporters push awareness for him. A week will mark Kristian as missing for nine months. This passage of time means that something may have happened to him. The best case scenario is that Kristian is living as a homeless man somewhere and will chose to come home. But he took nothing with him.
