    AK - David Grunwald, 16, Anchorage, 13 Nov 2016 *Arrests*

    Missing teen’s truck found abandoned and burned, mother says

    A 16-year-old boy went missing late Sunday evening, and his mother and friends have turned to Facebook for help locating him.

    In a phone interview Monday night, Edie Grunwald said the last time she spoke to her son, David, was around 7 p.m. Sunday. He called to ask permission to stay out a little later than usual so he could drop his girlfriend off at home in the Smith Road area in Palmer. She said they agreed he would be home by 9:20 p.m. He was driving a Ford Bronco truck.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    .. he was wearing jeans, tennis shoes and an orange North Face sweatshirt when he went missing. He is 6 feet tall, she said, and weighs roughly 150 pounds.

    This is my first post on WebSleuths so please forgive me for any newbie mistakes that I made and I appreciate any feedback that one can give me to streamline my posts. Thank you!

    We know he lived off of Gershmel Loop in Palmer, AK and his girlfriend's father's house is located off of Smith Road in Palmer, AK. His truck was found on a trail in Wasilla, AK. When looking at the map, his girlfriend's house is 20 minutes E of Grunwald home yet his truck was found approximately 20 minutes due W of the boy's home. It looks like one would almost drive by his home to get to where his truck was found. I attached a link to the map for review. Also, according to the article I read, David Grunwald had stated to his mother that he was going to stop by a friend's house on the way home (unsure of where the friend resides), however the friend said he never showed up. I am unsure if the cop's have corroborated this friend's statement or not. The father of the girlfriend stated that all he seen was headlights in his driveway between 6:30 and 7pm when David dropped off his daughter. He stated that everything seemed fine with the daughter. All we do know is that sometime between when he dropped her off at home and 12:30pm the following the day when his truck was found, something went terribly wrong for this kid.

    Massive Search Underway in Mysterious Disappearance of Alaska Teen David Grunwald

    When Alaskan teen David Grunwald didn't return home last Sunday night, his family immediately thought something was wrong.

    And when his 1995 Ford Bronco was discovered abandoned and torched on a rural trail several hours later, panic set in.

    Marking my spot.

    Wonder if there are any clues on the fb or other social media of the friend he was supposed to see that night ?
    Someone knows something; imo.

    He seems like a really nice kid. Terrifying the way his truck was found.

    Searching by Sky and land for missing 16 year old
    BUTTE, Alaska (KTUU) More than a week after a teen from the valley went missing, about 45 people gathered to search for him in Butte, alongside Jim Creek.
    Two planes flew over the Knik River looking for any signs of 16 year old David Grunwald, as crews on the ground walked by foot.
