20 year old Berry Tyler Allen, a University of Colorado student, has been missing since April 14, 2015 in Boulder, Colorado. Tyler was reported missing by his parents on Saturday; however, he has not been seen on Thursday, April 11 and last heard from on April 16 when he sent a text message to his friends, according to Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel.

Allen is described as a 140-pound white man with blond hair and blue eyes.

He was last seen by roommates on Tuesday the 14th, according to his parents.
Allen’s parents, Berry and Sheryl Allen, said that he swiped his Buff Onecard into Macky Auditorium’s main entrance on Sunday, April 12th, but did not get in; he does not have access to the building on his card. Allen is in CU’s University Choir and has a class in Mackey. He attended choir practice on the night of April 13, according to his parents.

“He took his guitar, his laptop and a backpack. That is all that is missing from his room, no clothes,” she said. “We’re concerned. He meant to go somewhere temporarily and something happened.”
The Allens have been putting flyers up on buildings around campus. They are following his class schedule and talking to his classmates. They have created a Facebook page called “Find Tyler Now.”
Kim Kobel is the spokesperson for the Boulder Police Department. She says that detectives are working every possibility, but they do need more leads.

Allen attended a choir class April 14 but hasn’t been seen since. On Thursday, he texted his roommates to tell them he had stayed at a friends place and pulled an all-nighter at the library. That was the last anyone heard from Allen. But while canvasing Tuesday, the Allens got their first potential break.

The Air Force Office of Special Investigations is still investigating the death of 21-year-old Cadet 1st Class Alexandre Quiros. He was found injured in a dorm room on campus and later died on April 2. The cause of his death hasn’t been made public but it’s not a criminal investigation.

29 Year Old Denise Huskins Missing Since 3/23/15 in Vallejo, CA … Possible Abduction/Kidnap for Ransom (Update: Police Searching Mare Island Waterfront)(Update: Found Safe in Huntington Beach, CA)
29 year old Denise Huskins has been missing since Monday, March 23, 2015 in Vallejo, CA. According to reports, Denise Huskins was kidnapped from the home of her boyfriend, 30 year old Aaron Quinn. Huskins was reported missing from the 500 block of Kirkland Avenue on Mare Island at about 1:55 PM. The boyfriend told police “a ransom demand was communicated” during her abduction. However, according to the police, Denice Huskins was abducted sometime between midnight and 5 a.m. on Monday but her boyfriend didn’t tell police until almost 2 PM. A vehicle taken from the home and found later in the city is also under Quinn’s name. Huskins is 5’7″ and weighs 150 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes, police said. The FBI has joined the investigation into missing Denise Huskins. Aaron Quinn is reportedly not considered a suspect.
At some point during 29-year-old Denise Huskins’ kidnapping Monday in Vallejo, her boyfriend was given a ransom demand, police said a day later.
The woman, a physical therapist at Kaiser Permanente, was reported missing about 12 hours after her boyfriend told police that he saw her being “forcibly taken against her will” and spirited away, Vallejo police officials said Tuesday.
Quinn and Huskins are physical therapists at Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center, police said. Huskins hails from Huntington Beach but has been living in her own place in Vallejo for about the last year, police said.
The 500 block of Kirkland Avenue, where Huskins was abducted, was blocked off by police tape and a command vehicle idled nearby Tuesday morning.
Hmm, so Denise Huskins is allegedly abducted sometime between midnight and 5 AM as witnessed by her alleged boyfriend, Aaron Quinn, and he does not contact police of his kidnapping until about 2PM. REALLY? The authorities are stating that Quinn is not considered a suspect. REALLY? Or are they just saying this in order to get his cooperation. I am not sure what kind of boyfriend material waits that long to contact the police when your girl friend is abducted.
A ransom demand was received for a 30-year-old Vallejo woman who was forcibly taken from her Mare Island home by an unknown abductor, Vallejo police said Tuesday.
Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Park said investigators got a call from a man who lives with Denise Huskins reporting she had been abducted.
“All I can tell you is there was a ransom demand,” said Park, who would not divulge whether it was a written or verbal demand for cash.
In the search for a kidnapped Vallejo woman, crews have focused on Mare Island and the surrounding area. Crews are using sonar along the Mare Island waterfront to help in the search for Denise Huskins.
The 30-year-old woman was last seen Monday morning, when a man told police Huskins was abducted from their Vallejo home.
More than 100 trained search personnel spent Tuesday near Mare Island. Investigators say there was no specific tip that led them to the area, they focused there because of its proximity to where Huskins went missing.
The search of a missing woman police say was kidnapped and being held for ransom is now centered on a section of the Mare Island waterfront.
Search dogs hinted at an area that could be related to Denise Huskins’ alleged kidnapping. Sonar has been deployed in the area, and divers could go into the water on Wednesday.
“The intention is for the dive team to go into the water, and discover or I should say to look at what this object they’ve discovered to be, and at this point we have no idea what that is,” said Lt. Kenny Park.
If anyone has any information regarding Huskins’ location and welfare, please contact the Vallejo Police Department Detective Division at 707-648-4524.
Denise Huskins, who was reported kidnapped two days ago in Vallejo, California, has been found safe more than 400 miles away, authorities and her father said Wednesday.
Huskins’ boyfriend Monday afternoon called police and said she had been abducted that morning from his home in the Bay Area. About 48 hours later, she was located an hour south of Los Angeles.
Officers from the Huntington Beach Police Department found Huskins at her father’s apartment complex, department spokeswoman Jennifer Marlatt told reporters.
Huskins, 29, is in good condition and had no apparent injuries, Marlatt said. Huskins left with police to meet several family members.
Investigators in Vallejo are traveling to interview a woman who was reportedly kidnapped from her boyfriend’s home, held for ransom, then found safe Wednesday, 420 miles south in Huntington Beach, authorities said.
Denise Huskins, 29, was found in “good condition” at a relative’s house, said Huntington Beach police Officer Jennifer Marlatt.
Vallejo police said Wednesday afternoon that they are continuing to investigate the case as a kidnap-for-ransom.
“We’re confident we’re going to be able to piece this puzzle together and get a better picture of what really occurred once we speak to Ms. Huskins,” Vallejo Police Department spokesman Lt. Kenny Park said.
“There’s nobody that’s a person of interest at this point. Everyone is.”
Breaking: Germanwings A320 Flight 4U9525 from Barcelona to Dusseldorf Crashes in French Alps … 144 Passengers & 6 Crew Feared Dead (Update French President Says Likely No Survivors)
A Germanwings Flight 4U9525, Airbus A320 crash in French Alps near Digne, with 150 people on board, 144 passengers and 6 crew members. Germanwings is a low-cost, economy airline subsidiary of Lufthansa Airlines. Flight 4U9525 was traveling from Barcelona to Duesseldorf. According to sources quoted by AFP news agency, the plane had issued a distress call at 10:47 (09:47 GMT), 5:47 ET. According to the flight tracking website Flightradar24, Germanwings Flight 4U9525 climbed to 38,000 feet before it started to descend, and the signal was lost at 6,800 feet. The A320 disappeared off the radar before crashing near Digne-les-Bains.
An Airbus operated by Lufthansa’s Germanwings budget airline crashed in southern France on Tuesday and all 148 on board were feared dead.
French President Francois Hollande said he believed none of those on board had survived.
“There were 148 people on board,” Hollande said. “The conditions of the accident, which have not yet been clarified, lead us to think there are no survivors.”
- A Germanwings Airbus A320 has crashed in French Alps near Digne, with 148 people on board
- Flight 4U 9525 was travelling between Barcelona and Duesseldorf
- French President Francois Hollande said he believed none of those on board had survived
- Cologne-based Germanwings says it was aware of reports
- The low-cost airline owned by giant German carrier Lufthansa
French President Francois Hollande has expressed his “solidarity and condolences” with Germany in phone call to Angela Merke.
“I want to express my solidarity to the family of the victims. We do not yet know the identities of the victims. It is a mourning we have to go through because it is a tragedy that has happened on our soil,” he said.
“We do not yet know what has happened to flight 4U 9525. My deepest sympathy goes to the families and friends of our passengers and crew on 4U 9525. If our fears are confirmed, this is a dark day for Lufthansa. We hope to find survivors,” said Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr in the statement.
The Airbus A320, operated by the budget airline Germanwings, was en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf when it vanished from radar screens at 09.39 local time.
Flight GWI18G came down near Prads-Haute-Bléone, between Digne-les-Bains and Barcelonnette, north-west of Monaco. It was flying at just 6,800ft at the time and Bernard Cazeneuve, the French interior minister, said debris had been found at an altitute of 6,500ft.
A distress signal, thought to have been sent by aircraft’s automatically-activated crash position indicator, was picked up at 10.47 local time, showing that the aircraft was “at 5,000ft in an abnormal situation”, said Alain Vidalies, the French transport minister.
UPDATE IV: Why did 9525 plummet from 40,000ft?
The 24 year old plane, built by the French Airbus consortium, transmitted a distress signal at 9.47am local time, with one unconfirmed report saying it was sent out at 6,800 feet.
The distress call, typically transmitted in a general aircraft emergency, did not give any additional information about the type of emergency.
The aircraft was flying at its normal cruising altitude of around 40,000 ft, but within 10 minutes made a staggeringly swift descent to around 6,200 feet.
This points to a major problem with the aircraft, and suggests the two pilots were struggling to control the plummeting aircraft.
This graph from FlightRadar24 shows how the plane lost altitude and speed prior to disappearing from the radar.
UPDATE V: Bodies are being taken to a local village gym, it is being used as a temporary morgue as bodies are being recovered.
UPDATE VI: The crash site is a two and a half hour walk from the nearest settlement, and is inaccessible by land vehicles. Pics from rescue helicopter.
UPDATE VII: French officials said a police helicopter had located the crash site and first items of debris near the small town of Barcelonnette in the Alpes-de-Hautes-Provences.
UPDATE VIII - Total of 150 people on board Germanwings flight
Germanwings has confirmed the number of people on board as 150.
This includes 144 passengers and six cabin crew.

There is a search and rescue missing taking place after an Army helicopter crashed last night during a night training exercise at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle. According to Andy Bourland, spokesman for Eglin Air Force Base, the Army National Guard helicopter, a UH-60 Black Hawk, was reported missing around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, and search-and-rescue crews found debris around 2 AM. There were two helicopters involved in the training mission, one returned without incident. The Marines were part of a special operations group based at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and the soldiers were from a Hammond, Louisiana-based National Guard unit. Sadly, this does not look good. Although a search and rescue mission is underway, it appears that all may have died.
Seven Marines and four soldiers were missing early Wednesday after an Army helicopter crashed during a night training exercise at Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle.
The area where the crash happened Tuesday night was under a fog advisory. The area was still extremely foggy Wednesday morning, Eglin public affairs specialist Sara Vidoni said.
Search crews in the Florida Panhandle struggled with dense fog Wednesday morning as they tried to find seven Marines and four soldiers missing after their Black Hawk helicopter crashed late Tuesday night during a routine training exercise.
The Army National Guard helicopter– a UH-60 Black Hawk– was reported missing around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, and search-and-rescue crews found debris around 2 a.m., said Andy Bourland, spokesman for Eglin Air Force Base, outside Pensacola.
“At this time all are missing,” Bourland said. A military official said the 11 service members are presumed dead.
Bourland told “Fox & Friends” that debris was found near the Navarre Bridge, which is located on a small strip of land between Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

The helicopter was reported missing at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and debris was located at about 2 a.m., base officials said in a statement.
Eglin Air Force Base spokesman Andy Bourland told ABC News that it’s unknown whether weather played a factor.
“There was fog. I do not know at this time if it was a contributing factor, but when our search-and-rescue personnel arrived on scene there was very limited visibility,” he said.
We have been able to confirm these were MARSOC Marines on board the Blackhawk that crashed, but MARSOC spokesmen Capt. Barry Morris said they are not releasing the names of those on board yet.
There was some debris found around 2:30 Wednesday morning, but none of the seven missing marines or four Louisiana-based missing soldiers have been found.

Shasta Himelrick – Missing
In Ross County, the search continues for a 20-year-old pregnant woman. Sheriff George Lavender said Shasta Himelrick was reported missing after having last been seen by friends and family in Richmond Dale on Christmas night.
“There was some texting, phone conversations going on that she was supposed to be at home at a certain time – she was supposed to meet her boyfriend at a certain time, and that never happened,” said Sheriff Lavender.
Investigators discovered a security camera at the Speedway Gas Station on East Main Street in Chillicothe showed Himelrick walking into the store at 3:15am, Friday. At around 7:15am, Friday, authorities found the vehicle Himelrick was believed to have been driving.
“A maroon 1993 Lexus ES300 was found abandoned, out of gas, and the battery was dead along Three Locks Road there by the railroad tracks by the Scioto River at what they call ‘Higby Bridge,’” according to Sheriff Lavender, who added BCI has been called in to process the vehicle.
According to her grandmother, Shirley Himelrick, blood was found on the seat and the back of the headrest in the abandoned car. The discovery immediately created a sense of urgency surrounding her case, but also the anxiety of wondering whether or not she was the victim of foul play. Her social media presence in the days leading up to her disappearance don’t appear to show any warning, with her last post on Facebook being about how happy she was to be pregnant.
The relatives of a missing Ross County woman said they believe a body found in the Scioto River yesterday is hers.
An official positive ID isn’t expected until an autopsy is performed in Montgomery County today. Ross County Coroner John Gabis would not release details about the body other than to say it is a female.
