UPDATE: 2/11/16 – More information is coming about about Cristian. The family stated they have been receiving texts and phone calls demanding a ransom.
“Initially, it started off at $10,000. Then it went down to $5,000. Then it went down to several hundred, and then it went down to, well how much do you have in your pocket,” said private investigator Bill Garcia.
The family believes that it is not a serious or legitimate ransom. Now we know that Cristian got a ride to an ice cream shop in South Park area of San Diego, which is not too far from North Park. From there Cristian took a taxi to San Ysidro, which is San Diego’s border town to Tijuana and where you can also cross over to Tijuana on foot. San Ysidro is about 15 miles away from South Park. Was Cristian going back home and something stopped him from making it to his final destination?
