    Krystian is still missing and believed to be with a registered sex offender.

    Police believe Krystian is with Thacker, and the two were last seen in a white 1999 GMC Sierra pickup truck with North Carolina license plate PCC-3269.

    "We are pretty devastated. We weren't expecting her to leave," said Starnes. "It's been very difficult not being able to find her."
    Starnes doesn't know why her daughter left and says she doesn't care. She just wants her home safe.

    "We love you and we are not going to stop looking for you," said Starnes. "Come home!

    (...)

    Starnes said she is thankful for all the support she's received from the community during this tough time.

    However, she says that she's disappointed at how some people are saying negative things about the suspect's family. She wanted to express her support to the Thacker family.

    Hmmm I do wonder how they know she's with him. Isn't there enough for an Amber Alert?

    Police say she's with a convicted sex offender and they say the teenager went with him willingly. But now, they're not sure she is willingly staying with him.

    "We are very concerned for her safety because no one has talked to her, no one has spoken to either one of the two," said Sergeant Drew Gerringer, Burlington Police Department.Gerringer, Burlington Police Department.

    (...)

    Sergeant Gerringer says the police department originally requested an Amber Alert for Krystian (...)

    "Unfortunately, this case does not fall within the guidelines that the state has put in place [for an alert]," said Sgt. Gerringer.

    Even though #AmberAlert has not been called for Krystian Stuart, @BurlingtonNC_PD is treating case as such @WFMY

    That means as many resources as possible are being used to find the missing 16 YO @WFMY

    "Treating it as" an Amber alert isn't good enough, imo! Any time a child goes missing whether they went willingly or not and the child is known to be with a sex offender, they should put out an official Amber Alert. I know that wouldn't be practical because teens often run away and Amber Alerts would not be seen as important anymore if they were issued willy nilly. Yet, the fact that she's run away with a sex offender makes me think that should still be enough to bump it up to AA urgency.

    Being a teen I doubt she thought to look him up in the registry so I bet she was unaware of his sex offense anyhow. Perhaps she'd not have gone with him if she'd known that. I wonder what she thinks about it now if she's seen anything online about it. That's when his true colors would start showing. I hope she's found safe very soon.

    Btw, I find it hard to believe they are treating it like an AA when I've heard absolutely zero about it anywhere. Of course I'm not in or near NC, but I've heard of many other children that have gone missing that are across the country. I hope I am wrong and it's on every station throughout the Carolinas and surrounding areas.

    WFMY News 2 searched through Thacker's criminal records and found he has a history of sexual and physical violence.Thacker has been charged with Rape, Assault on a Female, Assault by Strangulation and Assault on a Child. To be clear, he has not been convicted in each case.

    Thacker was arrested in 2007 after police say he slapped, punched and knocked his then girlfriend to the ground. According to the arrest warrant,Thacker assaulted the woman while she was holding her 9 months old baby.

    In March 2008, he was found guilty of Assault on a Female. Around the same time as the assault conviction, Thacker was found guilty on charges of Second Degree Sex Offense.

    It would probably not matter to her if she knew he was a sex offender. After all, at 16, dating a 27 yo, she ought to know that is not a wise decision!

    They were probably sneeking around to see each other. She knew her mother would not approve. IMO, this is consensual.

    My opinions only.

    A 27 year old ADULT with a 16 year old CHILD is not consensual, legally or otherwise. Really hope this case gets more attention and Krystian is found safe.
