This is the first time I am starting a thread and I'm doing it from my tablet so I have trouble cutting and pasting.

Kristen was last seen at her Mother's home around noon on Thursday April 25th. She had laundry in her car and was going to a laundry mat. She and her car have both not been seen since. Kristen is listed as being 5'3" tall and weighing 94 lbs with blond hair and blue eyes. Her car is a 1998 dark blue Buick LaSabre with Kansas plate 703-FPH. Her family says it is unlike her to be out of touch with them and they do not believe she would leave her 4 children behind.

I think your probably right. Although it may turn out to have nothing to do with her disappearance, Salinas has a sex and drug trafficking problem due to its location at the. intersection of I-70 and I-35.

Not trying to be mean but I've been having a feeling from the start that she might just take a break or something like that. Being a 27 y/o single mom with 4 kids..and she had just moved in with her mother the day before she disappeared as well.

I don't know, it's possible of course something has still happened to her since she vanished.

Strange. First she was headed to the laundromat.......but then she (and the children) were at a friend's when she went to the store and didn't return??
I'm confused, was the confirmed sighting the same as her being at the friend's- or is it something different?
And the facebook page doesn't have a lot either. Her kids must be so sad.

oh dear Lord that made my heart drop. can you even imagine ever getting a call like that?! who is this anonymous woman? the perp? the perp's mother or sister? how would she know where to find the body?


The owner of the salvage yard, Mike Heath, says police haven't been by to search the premises. Police won't comment on details of their investigation.

ummm... why not?! has the salvage yard owner taken a look around?!

After an anonymous caller told Kristin Tyler's mother her daughter's body could be found at a salvage yard west of Salina, law enforcement officers and search teams with trained dogs were searching there Wednesday evening.

At least four members of a canine search team could be seen walking among the salvage vehicles at Charlie Heath West 40 Salvage at about 6 p.m.

Lisa Dockstader, 27-year-old Tyler's mother, said in an interview on KAKE news that an anonymous woman had called Monday to tell her to tell police to search the salvage yard.

so, she got the call on Monday... but the area wasn't searched until today (Wednesday)? would they have had to get a search warrant?! why would it take them so long to search?

And now its almost 11:30pm and they still haven't released the info they said they would release today. Probably because they are busy searching the salvage yard that should have been searched on Monday. And it stormed last night and its storming hard now so I seriously hope they didn't lose any evidence by waiting so long to start searching.

The video says they wouldn't comment on what they found but kind of implies they didn't find anything, saying they left after two hours, leaving no guards behind. One would assume that if they found a body or signs that there had been one they'd have stayed to investigate more closely.

Police arrest 'person of interest' in disappearance of woman (http://www.salina.com/news/arrest5-9-13) (salina.com)

A Salina man being sought as a "person of interest" in connection with the disappearance of Kristin Tyler was arrested without incident Wednesday evening in an Abilene motel, a police department spokesman said Thursday.

Joel M. Heil, 24, an acquaintance of Tyler’s, was arrested on warrants for failure to appear in Saline County District Court and a probation violation. Heil failed to appear with his attorney in court Monday on charges of possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia for incidents authorities allege occurred on April 7.
---
A search of a salvage yard west of Salina Wednesday evening didn’t turn up any evidence, Sgt. Brian Shea said. He said two trained dogs and four handlers searched the salvage yard for about four hours.

This seems to be the latest on the case, it's from May 16:


A preliminary hearing to determine if there’s enough evidence to try a man in the death of a Salina woman is set for Aug. 1.

KSAL-AM reports that 24-year-old Joel Heil appeared via closed-circuit video Thursday morning in Saline County District Court. He’s charged with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Kristin Tyler.

The mother of four was missing two weeks before her body was found May 9 in a ravine off Interstate 135 in rural Saline County.

The preliminary hearing was scheduled for August to give Heil’s attorney, Julie Effenbeck, time to gather information about the case, including obtaining autopsy results.

Heil also faces felony drug and battery charges in an unrelated case. He's jailed on a $1 million bond.
