Kristi Suzanne Krebs
Missing since August 9, 1993 from Fort Bragg, Mendocino County, California.
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Krebs left her job at Round Table Pizza on August 9, 1993 in Fort Bragg, California, but never arrived at her family's residence. Krebs' red Toyota Tercel was discovered abandoned, with the stereo missing, in a shallow creek in MacKerricher State Park shortly after her disappearance. Her bra, panties, wallet and driver's license were found inside her car, but there was no sign of her at the scene. There were small traces of blood on the dashboard and the front seat, along with shredded identification papers. A few torn-up photographs were scattered nearby. Authorities think that before she abandoned her car, Kristi changed into a gym outfit that she always carried with her. Her work clothes were found, sopping wet and neatly folded, on the backseat.

Krebs had been receiving medical treatment at the time of her disappearance for emotional difficulties. She experienced a similar incident involving her car becoming stuck and burst into flames, in an area near her home in May 1990. The morning after that incident, railroad workers saw Krebs, dazed and disoriented, wandering along the tracks. She was diagnosed as having a psychotic, trauma-related break down.
It is possible that Krebs became disoriented the night she vanished, and had a relapse of a stress-related mental breakdown, as in 1990, which left her not knowing who she was.
Several sightings were reported in Texas, Salt Lake City, and California. Kristi may have been hitchhiking with truckers across the country.
Foul play is possible.
