Missing since October 10, 1978 from Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California.
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Kruska was last seen hitchhiking from his Canyon Country home, down Interstate 5.
Kruska was running with the wrong crowd, drinking and using marijuana, but he wanted to join the federal Job Corps, and he looked forward to being in his sister's wedding.
Kruska's family didn't report him missing until February 1979, four months after a friend dropped him off near the I-5 to hitchhike.
The former Saugus High School football player hasn't been heard from since.
