    OR - Jerad Knutson, 19, Astoria, 27 February 2015


    Jerad Kendrick Knutson

    AKA: Ingrid Mayner
    Last seen: February 27, 2015
    Height: 5'5"
    Weight: 125lbs
    Race: Asian/Pacific Islander
    Physical: Short brown hair, brown eyes

    According to local police, who refer to Knutson as a transient:

    At 11:30 p.m. Friday, Astoria Police received multiple calls about a man, later believed to be Knutson, running in front of traffic on U.S. Highway 101 near Youngs Bay Bridge. When police responded, the found a backpack containing personal items belonging to Knutson, but not Knutson himself.
    There has been little media coverage since. Today, his family gave an interview to the local newspaper with more details:

    He’s been missing since Friday, Feb. 27, the last day his family had contact with him. He had been staying with his grandmother in Cannon Beach, and with his aunt, Tara Culver, in Astoria, since coming to the North Coast about a month ago from Plains, a small town in Montana.

    “I talked to him that night at 7:30 p.m.,” explained his mother, Jenny Knutson, who drove over from Montana to help find him. “Everything was just fine. I was getting ready to send him a ticket to go back to Montana. Then we could not find him the next day.”

    What has been especially alarming is that his shoulder bag, new trench coat, Social Security card and a journal he always wrote in were found at Astoria’s Roundabout around 11:30 p.m. Feb. 27. The Astoria Police Department has his possessions, and is keeping them for him.

    Tara was told that what Jerad had written in the last couple of pages in the journal indicated that Astoria was not for him. He wanted to get out of town, and intended to go back home to Montana. But no one knows if he’s actually headed that way or not.

    People on the street the family has talked to while looking for Jerad told them that his phone died the night he was last seen, and wouldn’t take a charge. After checking with the cellphone company, Tara said there have been no outgoing calls from the phone since then.

    If you have any information about Jerad, please call either Tara Culver at 503-440-2904 or the Astoria Police Department at 503-338-6411.
