I don't remember how I learned about the disappearance of Crishtian Hughes, only that the fact that he is almost the same age as Dakota ( D is 19) and from San Diego struck me, as well as the desperation of his mother. Crishtian went to San Francisco from San Diego with some friends, and the night before he was to fly back home, he went missing. Here's a poster and this is what is written on his Facebook page:
On Thursday 2-7-2013, Crishtian Hughes vanished in San Francisco without a trace. He was last seen at 12:30 a.m. at the home of friends he was visiting, 962 Capitol Ave, San Francisco, CA.
When his friends woke up around 10:00 a.m., they said he was not there. Christian family filed a missing persons report with the San Francisco Police Department. It is SFPD policy to send all missing persons cases back to the city in which they are from. Leaving the family to search on their own.
In this case Crishtian Missing Person's file is now in San Diego CA. 500 miles away from where he is missing. It makes no sense.
It is unlike Christian to go missing on his own...Crishtian has a firm history of informing his family of his whereabouts—he has NEVER not informed his family of his location or his plans.
There has been no phone activity from his cell phone since 12:30 a.m. 2-7-2013, Along with his bank cards, as well as S.S. #

I've been sharing weekly on my FB page, Pinterest and Twitter, and his mother has organized search teams as well as keeping interest up by daily FB posts and posters.
I feel her despair keenly.
