- Wedding: October 2012
I met my fiance while he was traveling around the country, living out of his car. He had a travel buddy who was seriously the best guy in the world. They met at a laundromat in Texas – FI was driving, and the friend – let’s call him Kurt – was hitchhiking – and they traveled together for 3 months after that.
I know what you’re all thinking – hitchhikers! Crazy! Axe murderers! Scary!
But seriously, this guy was an angel in disguise. I seriously think FI would not be alive if he hadn’t met Kurt during his travels.
After Kurt and FI split up and FI and I started traveling together, we kept in touch with Kurt via Facebook and occasional phone calls. He was great about staying in touch and he made it abundantly clear that he dearly loved us and that he wanted to be friends forever.
Now…… We have not heard from Kurt since September.
We have no idea where he could be. We knew where he was last and where he had his last residence, but California (San Francisco and San Diego, respectively) is a big place. He is an adventurer, a hiker, an ex-Navy Seal. He likes to have a great time – but last we heard from him he was planning on settling down again because he felt he’d finally “found himself” during his travels.
We know his name (and it is is real name, because FI was in posession of his birth certificate for a while) and the town where his parents live. I tried searching his last name in that town, hoping I could just start calling numbers and seeing if the person who answered had a son named Kurt, and got 100+ results! 🙁
Does anyone have ANY idea what we should do??? I really really want to find Kurt again, both because he is wonderful, and because FI wants him to be his best man.
ETA: Forgot to mention that said Facebook page was mysteriously disabled a few weeks ago, and it was not under his real name (it was under his “road name” lol) so looking for people related to him via that profile won’t work.
UPDATE:: Thanks to recommendations from the Bees, I have located people who I am pretty sure are his parents and while their phone number is unlisted, I am mailing them a letter (along with a picture of us with Kurt so they know I am for real) RIGHT NOW!!!! I cannot thank you enough! I will let you now how this pans out.
