Hoquiam man missing for a month
Posted: January 27, 2006
No one has seen or heard from Tristan Basham, a quiet 21-year-old Hoquiamite, since he rang in the New Year at a local pub, then disappeared into the darkness.
“It’s like that TV show ‘Without a Trace,’ ” said Jim Maloney, the acting chief of the Hoquiam Police Department. “That’s exactly what it is.”
Detectives combed an area of the Hoquiam River for the past two weekends with volunteers and search dogs.
“We thought we’d look by the river because he lives about six blocks away … and had to walk to the other side of the river to get back home,” said Shane Krohn, the lead detective on the case. “We didn’t have any indication he went into the water, but we searched anyway.”
The missing man’s father, David Basham, has posted missing person posters all over town. He says it’s not like his homebody son to be away for any length of time without calling. He described Tristan as a bookish person who likes to play guitar. The young man lived with his dad and was mulling whether to return to college or look for a job.
“I’m starting to suspect foul play, but I don’t want to think about that,” said Basham, a technology director for the Hoquiam School District. “I’m just trying to get the word out. I’ve even sent the posters to homeless shelters. We have so few clues to go on.”
Detective Krohn says the few tips that have trickled in turned out to be dead ends.
Tristan Basham was last seen at Stiffy’s Pub & Grub at 207 8th St. in downtown Hoquiam, Krohn said. Someone reported seeing him leave about 15 minutes after midnight on New Year’s Day.
He didn’t have a car and walked to the pub from the apartment he shared with his father on Broadway in Hoquiam.

They have located a body, in the water, and authorities think it could be Tristan.
The body is "similiar in description" as the young man and was located in an area that authorities say makes sense when you consider where they think Tristan may have entered the water.
His father believes it is him, but authorities want to make sure.
Much more at link.

"On January 1st, 2006 in Hoquiam, Washington; Tristan Atene Basham went missing. After an evening’s outing, Tristan stepped out into the New Year and was never seen again. He apparently he fell into the night's waters. In February, his body was found along the banks of Gray's Harbor; he was twenty-one.""Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James
