    CA - Kristin Ghilardi, 29, Canyon Country, 26 Aug 2015

    The Nixle alerts and everything so far have her name as Kristen, but her mom's FB and Kristin's FB have it as KristIn (with an I not e).

    I used what the alerts and articles said since that's how it's written, but I do think it's Kristin based on her FB and her mom's spelling of it.

    Full Nixle Alert:

    On Friday, August 28, 2015, family members went to Santa Clarita Sheriff’s station and reported Kristen Ghilardi missing. Kristen had been missing since August 26, 2015, when she was last seen at a friend’s house in Canyon Country. Kristin said she was going to take “Patrick” to Simi Valley. Kristin’s family has not been able to contact her and are very concerned. Kristin works with a homeless outreach program.

    Kristin was last seen driving her charcoal grey, 2006 Toyota Corolla, four-door sedan. The vehicle has tinted rear windows.

    Plus some of the article:
    A teary Diane Ghilardi said to Hopper, “Everyone is worried about you. Just come home.”

    Ghilardi was suppose to pick up her son Wednesday and never showed up.

    “To leave her son who is the most important thing in the world to her? No. It’s not like her. She wouldn’t do that. Something is wrong,” says her mom.

    Kristen volunteers with the homeless outreach program through her church in Santa Clarita.

    Her friend Ashley Boger says the two of them met a homeless parolee named Patrick earlier this month. Ashley says Kristen wanted to help him. She provided him with a car ride to his parole officer in Simi Valley a few weeks ago.

    Then on Wednesday Ashley says Kristen got a call and said she had to go to Simi Valley and would be back in time to pick her son up from school.


    “Something is really really wrong,” Bolger says.

    Family members have turned to Facebook. They’re trying to reach out to as many people as possible. They’re hoping someone knows something.

    <snip>

    Family says calls to Kristen’s cellphone go straight to voice mail.

    Her FB per her mother's: https://www.facebook.com/kristin.ghi...c_location=ufi

    Her mom, Diane (quoted in the CBS site above that I just posted) is easily findable via her name on FB and she's posting often. Since it's not an official site or Kristin's I can't link directly.

    She is reported to have been in the Tarzana, Northridge, Simi, and Ventura areas in the week prior, but had last been at a home in Canyon Country before saying she was heading to help Patrick get to Simi Valley.

    She's reported to now have VERY short hair and possibly be wearing a bandana.

    Her car (description above) is reported to have front end damage.

    Mom has more recent photos of her on FB earlier today.

    Thankfully all the local LE media are heavily getting the word out on their broadcasts, twitter accounts, and FB pages.

    As many are pointing out, she may have been using canyon roads between the two, may of which are accident prone and have very poor cell reception (a known problem for LE and locals alike)

    Here's one that's picking up traction so I'll link it (their article is just the basics)

    They need to fly over her route, Santa Clarita/canyon country has plenty of areas one could go off the road

    This doesn't look good. We've had such an issue with Homeless Camps here over the past few years. Now learning this guy "Patrick" was a parolee? She is friends of friends. More will come to light soon. Last night around town we heard that there might have been a sighting and the Sheriffs were investigating. I'm surprised more people aren't on this thread yet.

    Plus some of the article:
    I heard about this case on KFI this morning. They had a snip of her brother speaking. he described her as having a shaved head.

    Can we get a current photo?

    It is upsetting. I have helped people in the past like she has which puts one in a dangerous position. So my heart goes out to her. But my dad really trained me on how not to be a victim and that involves making sure you always let someone know exactly when you're with, where you are going and when you'll be back.

    In cases like this, she should not have gone alone to give this cat a ride.

    Scary and I am not optimistic about the outcome.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!

    is there a description of this patrick person??

    that's some job she took on maybe they ran off together.

    hoping her loved ones get some answers soon.

    I'm also perplexed that we don't have updated photos. If she has shaved her head that is radically different. She had taken this fellow to his parole officer in Simi before. Shouldn't LASD be able to track down who he is. Her friend sounds like she knew him too. How about a sketch?
    Best wishes for a speedy healthy return. I live in the Santa Clarita Valley and still have not gotten over the disappearance of Bryce Laspisa. Two years now.

    Just saw this...

    Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are investigating the discovery of human remains that were found near the 26400 block of Bouquet Canyon Road, in Santa Clarita on Monday, August 31, 2015 at approximately 9:40 a.m.

    The cause of death and identification of the victim will be determined by the Los Angeles Department of Coroner.
    VERY possible location wise - as it's basically miles from Canyon Country and on a very possible route to Simi Valley.

    I'm hoping the fact that it says "remains" not a body could rule her out since it's not been that long, but given the heat here...I'm afraid if she were dead, they might already be only finding remains.

    However, I'm guessing knowing what I do of CC and SCV, and then knowing the San Diego area really well, that although I don't know that particular block where she was found, the location being near a riverbed but also near some pretty major areas (roads/businesses wise) that the area there may be like we have here in San Diego, and that being transients tending to shelter along the riverbed areas (even if dry) especially during the nights.

    But...like I said, the location immediately made me think Kristin might be a possibility
