    Took a long time to report him missing I think.

    If he was on his way to an evening event, maybe his parent(s) were asleep when he was supposed to arrive home and awoke to find him not there. Or perhaps they spent time looking for him first before calling it in. He was last seen at 6:30 but they assumed he was at the youth group. So the time would really be from the time they expected him home until 3:15. It's only a few hours. There are lots of woods in that area and the road leads to a beach. Lots of places to look before they called it in.

    I don't think the parents waited a long time to report him at all. I'm praying that Tyler is safe.

    There are so many possibilities, obviously. Depending on where he was on Picnic Pt Rd, parts of it aren't the safest to walk on (little or no shoulder) but there are lots of people who do run, walk, walk dogs, and cycle there. It is an upscale area but there are still a lot of woods and it is basically one big hill. So while abduction could be a definite possibility, so could an accidental fall if he went off the beaten path. There are unmarked walking trails and short cuts through there (or at least there were years ago) that locals would know.

    My inlaws live in the picnic point area and there is a gulch near there that is very popular with cross country runners and walkers. Do we know if Tyler was a runner?

    Do you mean the path that goes from Picnic Point Rd up to the back of Endeavor Elementary? It could be a feasible path depending on (if) where he exited Picnic Point Rd since the church is north.

    The MSM does say the Snohomish County SD is actively looking for Tyler but I wish there was more information on what their efforts include. No word on search groups, use of dogs, etc.

    I am just basing this off his sisters post that he was attending a Russian youth group and the only one in the area is the Spring of Life. Their youth group has a very active Facebook page but not a single mention of Tyler being missing.

    I believe it is called Japanese Gulch....

    My godson is a cross country runner and I went to a few fundraising events. Tyler's build makes me think runner...and it was a beautiful day. But I'm not sure someone would plan a run right before church. Maybe just a leisurely walk.

    I noticed the FB pages for the youth group and the church and nothing was said. I'm confused that the church is a Slavic church though.

    Yes! That would be the trails I mentioned above. Nice to know they have a name! I did not realize that was all being developed as a park area now. (I grew up very nearby and my family and closest friends are all still there.)

    I am guessing his sister is using "Russian" to mean "Slavic". A lot of Americans don't know the difference.

    Hmmm...it's been a couple of years since I have been home but it looks like there is a Russian church and two Slavic churches all in Mukilteo. That said, the Spring of Life has an active youth group and the others don't even have much of a web presence so hard to confirm.
